A waste container is a portable container in which waste is placed for convenience of movement. The containers are defined into container types whichdefine how a company stores and transports waste based on the rules and regulations of the country/region. Only the defined waste container types are allowed to transport waste.
There are some predefined waste containers that are delivered by SAP, but only for the United States of America.
To add and define your own waste containers, use the Specify Container Types Customizing activity and follow the steps below. In this Customizing activity, you can view and define regulated container types which hold waste products for the disposal process of your country/region.
Create a new entry and add the Waste Stream Container Type WZA
Enter the Country/Region ZA for South Africa and the Description Waste Container South Africa
The defined waste containers are then selected in the My Waste Streams - Waste Management app which creates waste streams, the connection between waste products and where they are produced and stored. Once the waste containers are selected in the app for your country/region, it is subsequently used in the rest of the disposal process.
Note: Creating a waste stream will be another step later in the blog series, but is not necessary to create at this point in the end-to-end process.
