This assessment found that although the demand for formal pit emptying services is high, there is a lack of treatment plants and few pit emptiers. The day laborers who are hired to perform this filthy job face serious health hazards, engage in questionable disposal practices, and lack the capacity to improve the quality of their services. This assessment proposes innovative low-cost options for fecal sludge management in three areas: sludge removal/transfer, transportation, and disposal/treatment. [authors abstract]

Abstract

This assessment found that although the demand for formal pit emptying services is high, there is a lack of treatment plants and few pit emptiers. The day laborers who are hired to perform this filthy job face serious health hazards, engage in questionable disposal practices, and lack the capacity to improve the quality of their services. This assessment proposes innovative low-cost options for fecal sludge management in three areas: sludge removal/transfer, transportation, and disposal/treatment. [authors abstract]
