Pit Vidura is a safe, affordable, and reliable pit latrine emptying service that serves low-income households in dense urban areas of Kigali, Rwanda.
We are developing the hardware, software, and payment systems to streamline our process and make safe and affordable pit emptying services available for more urban households.
Double Vacuum (DoVac) Emptying System
We have developed a suite of tools to empty trash filled pits in hard to reach locations. Our DoVac (Double Vacuum) system enables us to pull from a distance of 100+ meters between the pit and the roadside.
We are using SMS marketing to drive sales and convert interested households into actual paying customers.
We use pit evaluation and mapping tools to facilitate a clustered sign-up approach which minimizes transport costs by filling our trucks to maximum capacity before going to the dump site.
