A heritage of trail blazing
While EnviroServ today serves all nine provinces of South Africa and operates in several African countries, the company started on a much smaller scale in 1979 as a door-to-door waste collection and disposal service. Our founders were entrepreneurs who saw a gap in the market and created the only privately-owned company prepared to tackle difficult operational conditions to service disadvantaged black townships during turbulent political times. This intrepid and pioneering spirit still informs everything we do today.
EnviroServ timeline of effective development and management of state of the art landfill operations:
- 1980s - The company expanded into a variety of markets including industrial waste.
- 1990 – The Holfontein industrial waste disposal site was commissioned in Johannesburg in 1990 according to the Department of Water Affairs’ Minimum Requirements.
