About Us

Environmental peace of mind

Since opening our doors in 1979 and rapidly becoming South Africa’s largest waste management company, we have been first to market with many waste management solutions. Some are still recognised as best practice.

We remain pioneers today because the drive to look for better ways of doing things is deeply embedded in our culture. We were established by forward thinkers who had a social conscience - and those are the kinds of people we still employ. So, whatever industry our people worked in, they’d be pushing for continuous improvement.

In addition, through being the first – and for long periods – the only company to tackle some of the most intractable waste management issues in South Africa, we’ve come to understand that sustainable waste management is not a finite concept. It evolves with society’s needs, habits, and awareness of health and environmental prosperity.

As a result, we keep evolving. New lifestyles, new technologies, new waste (there were no smartphones to discard 35 years ago!), new volumes of waste (more people eating, wearing, and using more things than ever before) new legislation, and new waste management thinking all create fresh possibilities, and challenges, for achieving environmental peace of mind
