- Re: Sanitation Business Catalogue - by: JKMakowka September 2, 2014Thanks for sharing, although I think "Sanitation Business Catalogue" is a bit of a misnomer... it's more of a "our somewhat private sector partners from various countries" catalogue and not a sort of yellow-pages which I would have guessed from the title.
