Abstract
The metal finishing industry has previously been found to be one of the most polluting industries of the manufacturing sector in South Africa. South African environmental legislation has recently (1998) been updated. The National Waste Management Strategy (NWMS), has clearly identified waste minimisation as an important part of future programs aimed at making waste handling practices in South Africa more sustainable. The waste minimisation approach has been applied in several countries in various industry sectors, including the metal finishing industry.
