New dry sanitation pilot project takes off

GA-MORETSELE – A new chapter in healthy and hygienic sanitation was witnessed at Ga-Moretsele village outside Jane Furse when the area’s dry sanitation pilot project hit the ground.

The pilot project, by Amalooloo, a dry sanitation company offering a completely new on-site dry sanitation technology, results in the provision of a healthy and environmentally friendly fertilizer which can be used for agricultural produce.

The emptying process of the new cutting edge dry sanitation technology toilets, erected recently in the area, does not use water. It instead involves separation in compartments of foreign objects from urine and human waste, which is dried up and burned, technologically, to be turned into fertilizer.

According to the Sekhukhune District Municipality the offshoot of the dry sanitation project are not only hygienic and safe sanitation but also creating employment among the scourge hit communities within the district.

The district municipality said thus far, the project in its pilot phase has provided three villagers, who underwent training, an employment opportunity and could result in many being employed into it.

“It is a real substitute for the commonly used VIP toilets and also a solution to the problem of littering of sanitary towels and nappies troubling communities,” said the district municipality.

Stan Ramaila, Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) Executive Mayor, was assured by Mpho Mathabathe, Project Manager, during the recent presentation as the pilot project was rolled out that the separation of solid waste and human waste was the bedrock of the new dry sanitation technology project, hence the avoidance of littering and environmental degradation.

Providing clarity of the cost effectiveness of the project, Mathabathe said: “The more units serviced during operation and maintenance, the lesser the cost.”

He further explained that individual households could acquire the operation and maintenance service at their own cost but encouraged the need for buy-in from government.
