Waste Disposal Licence

Applying for a Waste Disposal Licence:

The Transnet National Ports Authority considers proper waste disposal as vital to the safe, orderly and efficient functioning of the ports.
 
 
No Waste Disposal Licence is needed for waste disposal services provided directly to Transnet National Ports Authority, in terms of an agreement entered into following a procedure that is fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost effective. 
 
 
However, to comply with the National Ports Act 12 of 2005, it is imperative that waste disposal service providers need to have a valid licence to provide waste disposal services to port users in the port.
 
 
Following the conclusion of the initial waste disposal application advertisement and roll-out process during 2011, it was resolved that subsequent Waste Disposal Licence applications will be entertained on an ongoing basis without any further advertisements being necessary, and will be processed accordingly.
 
 
Application forms for a Waste Disposal Licence can be downloaded from this website, and may also be obtained between 08:30 and 16:00 from the Customer Service Centres (CSC) in the Port Administration Building in the Ports of Richards Bay, Durban, East London, Ngqura, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Saldanha Bay and the Revenue Office in the Port Control Building at the Port of Mossel Bay.
 
 
Applicants can submit applications, on a per port basis, to the Authority, for the attention of the Port Manager (or designated Port Licence representative) of the respective port.

Payment of licence fee:
 
Upon written notification of the successful outcome of an application, Transnet National Ports Authority requires a once-off payment per port for the full duration of the five (5) year term of the licence, before issuing the licence.  The licence fee is payable for each port you want to conduct your waste disposal business in.
