Organisation Profile


 

Sanitech was founded in 1984 as the first portable toilet hire company in South Africa. After the purchase of Sanitech by Waco International in 2007, the company grew to over 20 branches nationwide, expanded into Africa, and is able to proudly boast one of the largest rental fleet with the widest variety of units in the industry. Over the past three decades, Sanitech has grown into a leading provider of integrated environmental solutions for hygiene and sanitation in South Africa.

Committed to delivering on our values of innovation, integrity, teamwork and accountability, Sanitech is able to guarantee a tailor-made sanitation and hygiene solution to meet specific requirements across a range of clientele. By utilising the latest in technology, and continuously improving our products, we are able to maintain and deliver the highest standards of service excellence, whilst improving efficiencies and minimising costs.

Sanitation in South Africa has been a major problem for quite some time and Sanitech has taken the opportunity to utilise this problem to their advantage through the introduction of new and improved concepts, namely the Portable wastewater treatment plants, REPIT (retro fit for existing pit latrines) and the NIC (freestanding portable toilet with a self-contained water supply). The purpose of the wastewater plants is to convert domestic wastewater into reusable water. The REPIT has a ‘bladder’/bag that is highly durable and adaptable to varying pit sizes and can contain up to 2000 litres of waste. The NIC unit has a rotating bowl mechanism, which is coated with Nanotechnology coating to prevent debris from sticking to the bowl and has a rotating feature, which also assists in the prevention of disposing of foreign objects. These concepts are more hygienic to the users, environment and servicing teams.

In addition, Sanitech has the largest national rental fleet with the widest variety of units to suit your needs. Whether you need an executive unit or a basic non-flush option, Sanitech has the solution.

The benefit of an integrated service solution allows you to select Sanitech as the sole provider of key outsourced solutions on your site. This allows us to manage and render the best possible comprehensive multiple service solutions for your site, from your site, and allows your company the benefit of control over the usage of service providers, thus enhancing management control and standardising costs, thereby ensuring financial control. It also facilitates a single billing system, which effectively incorporates all services onto one statement of account. The reduced contractors passing through your site by having the existing staff on site conduct your soft services reduces security risks and ensures servicing is completed and signed off by on-site management.

Sanitech has the capability and capacity to handle any size project whether it is above or below ground. Sanitech will continue to deliver complete solutions in Hygiene and Sanitation, which will ensure better health for all that is both cost efficient and effective.

PRESS RELEASE

 With the drastic water shortage currently being experienced in Cape Town, individuals and organisations need to do all they can to save water. One of the immediate actions which can be implemented is the use of portable toilets, which impacts on the physical saving of water as well as being a vital element of disaster management.

"Although water saving has become a matter of urgency in Cape Town, it is relevant across South Africa and the continent,” says Robert Erasmus, Managing Director of Sanitech.

Worldwide, the portable restroom industry saves about 473 million litres of fresh, drinkable water each day. That’s enough to fill four lakes, each the size and depth of a large football stadium, every single day. Annually, the amount of water saved is over 170 billion litres. Not only does this industry contribute to water saving, but portable toilets contribute to safer drinking water, enhanced human dignity, increased productivity and protection from disease.

"A current example of the impact portable toilets can have in saving water is that of a manufacturing company in Cape Town which is using portable toilets as a substitute to their normal toilets. This company has committed to the ‘Save Now’ campaign and save an estimated 10000 litres of water per day by having ten portable toilets on site serving about 150 employees,” explains Erasmus. "The units are fitted with hand sanitisers as well which also impacts on fresh water saving.”

Saving water becomes more relevant with the possibility of water-shedding becoming ever more real.

"Not only do we have a moral responsibility to do all we can to save water, but this issue should also become part of every organisations Disaster Recovery Plan. Water shortages impact the environment, productivity and living standards, and there is no better time than to address this now.”

In preparation for day zero companies are encouraged to contact the local Sanitech offices to discuss water saving opportunities for their business.
