About Us

Champs Botswana (PTY) LTD started its operations in 2009 and over the time has developed a lot of expertise and experience in the integrated waste management field. Champs Botswana is mainly a hazardous and general waste management company that strives for a clean and healthy environment through the application of safe and environmentally friendly disposal techniques. In the past few years, Champs Botswana expanded its services.
 
Due to the demands by clients, particularly the mining and construction industries who preferred to deal with a single contractor on waste management, in the last four years Champs Botswana expanded its services to cover other waste such as general household/domestic and land fill waste, as well as other hazardous waste such as expired and redundant chemicals, chemical sludge, fibreglass, old paints,incinerator ash, fluorescent tubes, asbestos, used PPE, redundant IT equipment and old batteries.
Ownership

Champs Botswana is a locally (Botswana) registered and 100% citizen owned company. It was established by two environmentalists, Geofrey Khwarae and Baleseng Buzwani.
