Pit Vidura provides pit latrine emptying services in Kigali's dense low-income areas.
When pit latrines fill in urban areas, manual laborers remove the waste and simply dump or re-bury it within the same community. This practice threatens public health, is illegal, and unregulated. Pit Vidura is a solution to cleaning up fast growing cities and empowering communities with effective waste management practices.
Pit Vidura offers safe, affordable, and legal pit latrine emptying services to households in dense urban settlements. The waste that we excavate is transported by truck to Kigali’s dumpsite operated b the City of Kigali.
Their waste removal and transport service is an alternative to the common practice of manually emptying pit latrines and dumping pathogenic waste into the environment.
Pit Vidura is dedicated to developing alternatives to illegal methods of manual pit latrine emptying and disposal in the environment. Pit Vidura has developed a suite of emptying tools to make emptying safe, clean, efficient, and affordable.
Pit Vidura is using their business in Kigali as a live lab to develop and test hardware, software, and business model solutions that will benefit other pit emptying groups and ventures. Their goal is to develop technology that can help reach their target market and accelerate the impact of existing players. See more
