Solid Waste Management
As the world grapples with the challenges of solid waste management, India decided to tackle this challenge by launching Swachh Bharat Mission in 2014. The problem we are trying to solve is threefold and interconnected.
Ineffective Waste Collection
Waste Collection, resource recovery & disposal are unplanned & resource intensive, with low efficiency & effectiveness. Only 70% of urban solid waste is currently collected.
Hazardous Working Conditions
Sanitation staff are often exposed to hazardous working conditions. There is little to no focus on their human dignity and safety.
Harmful Disposal of Waste
In India, 77% of solid waste is not processed and is instead transported to open dumps.
Solid Waste Systems Transformation
We work with Urban Local Bodies(ULBs) and Gram Panchyats to transform solid waste management of cities, towns and villages. We do this by implementing our inhouse BOTRAM process.

Extended Producers Responsibility

Training and Certification
Training and continuous upskilling are important for sanitation workers to play the role of trainers of residents and torch bearers of a Swachh Bharat. Through BOTRAM we ensure they get access to such trainings.
