Wave Sanitation Services was founded in 2000, offering waste-water treatment, a toilet rental service and solid waste management. We at Wave understand that in a cleaner environment, all industrial sectors can perform efficiently and generate sustained profits. In a cleaner and safer environment, people — our most important resource — will spend more time on productive work and less time sick or seeking medical attention.
The world market for environmental clean-up services reached US$ 376 billion in 2002, according to Environmental Business International.
The market in Africa for environmental services is huge. In our sector alone, it ranges from waste containerization to transportation and disposal. Sanitation remains quite undeveloped. In some African countries, even universities do not have suffi cient toilet facilities. Many people drink water that is not safe. In some African states, the little rain that falls is unreliable: this creates a market for water conservation measures and technologies, increasing demands for environmental services. However, despite the need, governments in developing economies are sometimes unable to aff ord such environmental services.
