Welcome to the website of Leap Frog Waste Management.
Leapfrog Waste Management is a new consultancy firm with the focus on developing countries in particular in the African region. The company is founded by Mr. Bart van Weenen and Mr. Wim Snijder from the Netherlands and Mr. Arie de Kwaatsteniet from Zambia. All of them have a long term experience in the (international) waste business.
Leapfrog is a term used in the theory or economic development and implies a leap forward through the application of the latest technology. This means in general skipping the use of common previous technological phases. The most well-known example is that of the massive use of mobile telephony in countries like Kenya where never a large-scale fixed telephony network has existed.
