WCollect – Waste Collection Drive In Ahmedabad!!

Updated: Aug 12, 2023

In today's fast-paced world, we often forget the impact our actions have on the environment. Waste generation is a growing concern worldwide, and improper disposal of household waste is one of the major contributors to environmental pollution. However, there's a simple yet powerful solution to combat this issue - waste segregation and recycling. By segregating our household waste and sending it for recycling, we can play a significant role in building a sustainable future for generations to come.


What is Waste Segregation and Why is it important to segregate Waste and sent it for Recycling?

Waste segregation involves the process of separating different types of waste materials at the source. It means sorting out recyclables (such as paper, glass, plastic, and metal), organic waste (like food scraps and garden waste), and non-recyclables (like sanitary waste and diapers) into separate bins or containers. This initial step is crucial because it streamlines the recycling process and reduces the burden on landfills. Recycling is a vital component of a circular economy, wherein products and materials are reused, repaired, or recycled instead of being discarded after use. Embracing a circular economy model promotes resource efficiency, reduces waste, and fosters sustainable development. It helps in processing the already existing resources hence reducing the need of extracting new resources. It reduces the volume of waste sent to landfills conserving the space at landfill and also prevents the release of harmful toxins and leachates that can contaminate soil and water.


Tips for Effective Waste Segregation:

  1. Educate Yourself and Others: Learn about the types of waste that can be recycled in your area and share this knowledge with your community.

  2. Use Separate Bins: Place separate bins for recyclables, organic waste, and non-recyclables in your home for easy waste segregation.

  3. Composting: Set up a composting system for organic waste, which can be used to enrich the soil in your garden.

  4. Avoid Contamination: Ensure that recyclables are clean and dry before placing them in the recycling bin to avoid contamination.

  5. Support Recycling Programs: Participate in recycling initiatives and support businesses that use recycled materials in their products.


Here’s your chance to join hands and be part of the waste collection drive in Ahmedabad.

Inwaster is organizing a waste collection drive in Ahmedabad supported by Anjali Choudhary where 5 categories of waste will be collected from households, organizations and institutes. The categories are E-waste, Footwears, Plastics, Multi layered plastics and single use plastics.


What happens to the waste you give away in this drive?

Scrapbazar and Recosolution will take care of your waste in following manner:

Scrapbazar is an aggregator for all kind of waste. Once they receive the waste, they segregate it in various categories like E-waste, useless footwears, plastic containers, PET bottles, torn clothes and many more. Each category is mapped to various recyclers across India. Recyclers convert the waste into material which can be further used by various industries. Recosolution provides technology to convert plastic waste into useful material. They specialize in converting the multi layered plastics (MLPs) and single use plastics (SUPs). These are crushed and melted into lumbers/sticks and then molded into utility products like dustbins, pots, fashion accessories, benches etc.
