We aim to provide efficient and eco-friendly waste recycling services to households and businesses.

We strive to deliver exceptional customer service, educate and engage our communities, and continuously improve our processes to maximize waste recycling efficiency and minimize environmental impact.

What is your biggest success?

Our biggest success was being awarded the Sun City waste contract. We were the first female company in the entire Sun International group to be awarded a waste management contract. We pride ourselves in this achievement, as it has assisted us in expanding our company by employing more people(65 permamenant and 80 casual workers) and acquire more resources and fleet.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Our biggest hurdle was funding in our expansion stages. We struggled to receive funding from banks and other institutions because we were still a small scale business. We had to learn to use the little that we had in order to acquire the start-up that we needed.
