Careers at Sanergy

Sanergy offers a variety of bold sanitation and waste management solutions for today's growing cities! A solution that addresses sanitation and waste management systemic gaps from waste containment, emptying, transport, treatment and reuse of waste generated.

Our approach involves building a repertoire of cost-effective, high-quality sanitation products and services for residents living in urban non-sewered areas, safely removing all of the waste generated by our customers and transporting it to our central processing plant for treatment and up-cycling into high quality agricultural inputs and clean energy.

To date, we have built a network of over 3,000 Fresh Life Toilets in Nairobi and Kisumu cities of Kenya, which serve over 100,000 urban residents with safe sanitation every single day. At the same time, we safely remove up to 72,000 metric tonnes of organic waste (sanitation, kitchen, and agricultural waste) using innovative technologies developed in-house with robust proven equipment. To achieve all of these, we have built a diverse team of over 250 professionals.
