Established in August 2014, Sanitation Solutions Group (SSG) is a market-based sanitation enterprise whose objective is to provide affordable sanitation products and services to households and communities in Uganda. SSG’s initial focus was on three sanitation business models – pre-fabricated concrete latrine construction, latrine upgrading and business support to entrepreneurs in both latrine emptying and construction.
SSG has now refined its operations and our current specialization is emptying on-site sanitation facilities including pit latrines and septic tanks under our Fresh Pit brand.
SSG provides emptying services for both pit latrines (lined and unlined) and septic tanks. Depending on the facility that requires emptying, SSG uses either a cesspool truck or a gulper, an emptying technology that is especially suitable for congested urban slum areas that are inaccessible by cesspool trucks. We therefore provide an emptying solution for all households and institutions when their sanitation facilities fill up. SSG carries out extensive marketing to increase awareness about the emptying service and generate demand from customers.
SSG currently operates in Kampala, Mukono and Wakiso. For more information about our emptying service, visit our Fresh Pit brand page.
SSG also provides consulting services on market-based approaches to sanitation.
