SayPro HANDLING UNEXPECTED SITUATIONS RELATING TO HANDLING AND DISPOSING WASTE (SO 2, AC 2)

A range of unexpected situations can occur when handling and disposing waste. These unexpected situations must be managed. We shall look at some of the common incidences and how they can be handled;

  1. Compactor is not working

Follow procedures below;

Step Action
Collect the waste from the various areas and sort them according to the different types and keep them separate:

  • Liquid Waste. This can be dispensed down the drain, except oil and/or fat.

· Food waste. Contact a pig farmer to come and collect the food waste for his pigs.

  • Paper and related products. Pile them into neat stacks and secure them into bundles with string. Keep this away from heat, flame, ash or cigarettes. Put aside in neat piles and contact a paper collection company to collect them for recycling
  • Glass. Keep in a separate container meant for glass only. Contact a collection company to recycle them.
Remember to always wear your protective clothing and to wash your hands after handling waste.
Do not allow the waste to accumulate. Contact an external collection company to collect the waste, or if the unit has a truck/bakkie, arrange with the driver to take the rubbish away to the dump site.
Cans can be beaten with a hammer into smaller amounts and kept separate for “Collect-a-Can” to collect them for recycling purposes
If staff are allowed to take empty plastic containers, e.g. oil drums, they must first be issued with a pass-out signed by the appropriate person

b. Waste is not collected by external service providerFollow the procedures below;

Step Action
1.
  • Follow the company procedures to collect and sort the waste from the various areas in your unit.
2.
  • Contact the collection company to find out what the problem is and when they are of the intention to collect the waste.
3.
  • Contact an alternative waste collection company to collect the waste, the municipality might be able to help if you do not use them
4.
  • If there is a truck/bakkie available, it can be arranged that the rubbish be taken away to the local dump site
5.
  • It can be arranged for the municipality to bring a “Skip”-container into which all the waste can be placed for collection by them later. This, however, is not advisable as the container is open and will allow for the attraction of pests and bad odours to circulate
6.
  • Remember not to allow waste to accumulate as this is both a health and safety risk
