Sanergy’s for-profit waste collection operation ensures as much waste as possible is safely and effectively collected and removed from urban slums.
For a fee, Sanergy waste collectors regularly visit each Fresh Life Toilet, removing the full waste cartridges and replacing them with clean, empty ones. Once collected from the toilets, the waste is consolidated and transported out of the communities to a processing plant outside Nairobi. Sanergy uses data analysis to ensure the entire network is serviced in a timely, cost-effective manner. All Sanergy waste collectors are given personal protective equipment and vaccinations, in addition to extensive training on how to properly handle human waste.
Professional Collection Team
In urban slums with 40% unemployment, Sanergy's waste management team is primarily staffed from the communities in which they work.
