About Us

Who We Are

A Bloemfontein based waste management company called Waste Retrievers, was founded by Andre Roos in 2017. Andre built his company from the ground up, having only his bakkie and a huge dream.

Trying almost everything to generate income, Andre decided to launch his first solo venture in waste management with no experience whatsoever. With his great passion to help others, Andre opened Waste Retrievers company whose aim was to help residential and commercial customers to clear any overflowing waste that the local municipality failed to remove on allocated days. After working separate morning and evening jobs to keep the business afloat, Waste Retrievers eventually became one of the most rapidly expanding waste removal companies in Bloemfontein, putting emphasis on great customer service and environmental awareness. Serving our community to create a healthy and safe environment for our people was always something close to our hearts. Working hand in hand with Fichardtpark neighborhood association, we managed to keep our streets clean from illegal dumping and poor service delivery from our local municipality. You can visit Fichardtpark neighborhood association’s webpage or follow them on Facebook.

Expanding on his successful years clearing the streets of Bloemfontein, Andre is now delighted to share his services with everyone. Waste Retrievers offer high standard of services, positive stance towards saving our environment, and experience in waste collection to a wide audience. It is our hope that all major cities will have a Waste Retrievers’ branch to take care of their waste problems soon.

Our Goals

Our goal at Waste Retrievers is to become the SA’s standard bearer industry in waste management, by providing efficient and affordable environmentally friendly services to everyone. Recycling and reusing waste had always been of great importance to us. We are delighted to say that we currently recycle more than 70% of all materials we collect, and reuse any intact items we gather by offering them to charity. As Waste Retrievers, we built a stellar reputation based on providing the best possible customer satisfaction to our clients at affordable price, and we look forward to delivering our impeccable services across Bloemfontein. We have built our reputation over the years by helping thousands of customers, and providing them with reliable and professional waste disposal services.

Health and Safety

It is highly important to ensure that we provide a safe working environment for our staff, clients, and any other person we work with at Waste Retrievers. We ensure the minimum levels of risk for any possible dangers that could result in physical injuries to our customers and work associates, occupational hazards, and property damages.

To achieve this, we have set out the following guidelines:

  • Full and unequivocal compliance with all government environmental, health and safety regulations.
  • To ensure that protection of the environment is paramount at every operation.
  • To make sure that all Waste Retrievers employees are sufficiently trained in our 'ABC' (always be careful) directive.

At Waste Retrievers, we offer competitive prices that are calculated by the amount of waste we collect. This is proven to be more cost-effective than hiring a skip. With a skip, you will have to pay a set fee to have one parked on your driveway for days regardless of how much waste you want disposed. There are never any hidden or additional costs with our services. All upfront payments include transport, labour and disposal charges. Our price to collect your waste is guaranteed and confirmed before the job can be done, and you are not obligated to accept it.
