Clean Team is a social enterprise delivering safe and affordable sanitation services to low-income households in Kumasi, Ghana.
The enterprise provides customers with an ergonomically designed plastic toilet that can be used in homes, with a sealable internal cartridge to collect waste. The toilet is provided for free, and customers pay a small monthly fee for professional waste collectors to collect the waste from each house, replacing the dirty cartridge and cleaning the toilet. The waste is then transported to the city treatment site, ensuring safe disposal.
Clean Team aims to provide high quality, customer-centric sanitation services. It has a strong value proposition and is often cheaper for households than using public toilets, the main available alternative in Kumasi’s low-income areas.
Clean Team currently serves over 3,000 households in Kumasi (c.15,000 people), with plans to achieve financial break even towards the end of 2025.
