Pick-Up Waste Recycling was established in 2003. We at Pick-Up Waste are passionate about the environment and are concerned with the state of nature and the impact of waste on the environment. We firmly believe in recycling of waste where possible to ensure scarce recourses are not depleted or are dumped on landfill sites.

One of the main aims was to create an entity that can cater for individuals who are physically handicapped. Individuals who may not be able to find secure employment on their own in the open market but who are able to work in a group and thus overcome their disabilities. The company favors those people who are disabled physically but who are mentally more than competent. Thus it is envisaged to give every individual the opportunity to develop to maximum potential and promote from within where possible on account of performance. Unfortunately we are only able to employ those handicapped individuals that can be utilized as an economic production unit because of the fact that we are a private company and are bound to remain economically viable.

The handicapped do not want handouts; they want to earn a respectable living by virtue of that what they are able to do themselves. Therefore we do not appoint handicapped persons exclusively but also the unemployed non-handicapped individuals who can benefit our business as well.

We want to deliver our services at a cost effective price structure. We do not practice lip service; we are committed to customer service!


Pick-up-Waste employees are trained on a continuous basis by virtue of our excellent and challenging in-house training programs.

We believe there are better ways of waste disposal and or to store equipment and are therefore always looking for ways to improve our product range and to adapt to an ever-changing environment. We therefore appoint ad hoc specialists such as chemists, pharmacists, engineers and technicians to do specialized project work for us as and when required. Moreover, some of our end-users and buyers have certainly the most extensive testing facilities in the world and we therefore work with them to develop some of our ideas. With all these capable facilities and support available, nothing may be regarded as being “good enough”.
