Waste as opportunity

Safe disposal of waste is still a serious health challenge for many in low-income communities. WSUP developed SWEEP to address this challenge through an inclusive, fee-based and safe faecal sludge collection, transport and disposal service, provided by local enterprises to the urban population of Bangladesh. 

SWEEP sees this as a $25 million market opportunity since over 5 million people live in urban low-income communities in Bangladesh. They make up around 30% of the total target group for the service.
