Sanitation Expert is the Rare toxic variant of the Engineer in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He has a toxic aura which damages nearby enemies, and his attack inflicts toxic damage overtime too. However, in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, he does not have any toxic aura, and can only inflict toxic damage with his primary weapon. He was released in the Legends of the Lawn DLC.
All-out war with the Plants is messy business. Thankfully, the Sanitation Expert is here to clean that mess up. It may not be glamorous (we don't pay him), but nothing beats a hard day's work and a job well done. Thanks Sanitation Expert!
His Toxic Trash launcher deals toxic damage over time.
His primary weapon is the Toxic Trash. It deals 35 (40 when upgraded) impact and critical damage and 15 splash damage in addition to continuous toxic damage to plants.
Proximity Sonic Mine
An alternate ability of the Sonic Grenade, the Proximity Sonic Mine is a landmine which can stun plants for about five seconds when stepped on and makes Chompers come out of their burrow. This can be very useful for defending a Teleporter or trying to escape from plants.
The Jackhammer allows for quicker movement.
An alternate ability of Jackhammer, the Turbo Jackhammer travels faster, but lasts for a shorter amount of time.

More spacious garbage cans help to increase your ammo capacity.
What an incredible smell you've discovered! Upgraded compactors mean more damaging, trashy goodness in every shot.
- Sanitation Expert was the last toxic character to be added and the only one added in DLC content. However, this only applies to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
- Sanitation Expert is the only Engineer variant with two words in its name.
- Similarly to most of the other Engineers, its facial hair appears to have been removed in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.
- Sanitation Expert is the only toxic zombie variant to not have with a toxic aura.
- In the zombie mission "You Are Cordially Invited...", there is a Sanitation Expert named Barth (a pun on the word "barf") who will help the player find the location of Dr. Zomboss' secret lair if they beat his time at shooting gnome targets. However, once the player has done this, Barth is about to tell the location of the lair, but gets distracted by a Potato Mine next to him. He looks at the Potato Mine, looks at the player (with a worried expression) and is then launched over a hedge by the Potato Mine.
