4. All registered waste pickers should be eligible for benefits under Government schemes irrespective of their BPL status

5. Micro-waste collection and processing enterprises of waste pickers should be given capital and infrastructure by the Urban Local Body and the State Government

6. Waste-to-energy projects that use municipal solid waste as feedstock for burn technology should not be permitted to be setup


  1. Hey!

    I like your post .

    I must say that several corporations and industries realize the impact of waste on the environment and dutifully outline a bunch of rules that need to be followed for waste minimization.

    And there are so many companies you can look for.

    They summarize strategies that help to reduce, collect, recycle and dispose the resulting waste causing minimal damage to the environment.

    Thanks a lot buddy for the share.

    Keep doing good work.

    Blessings to you .

  2. Demand no 6 is not clear to me. Why would you object if energy is being generated from waste? Secondly in the indian context permitting only id card registered waste pickers to work, will bring in a new "license raj" and is a potential breeding ground for corruption. Uniting and formalizing structure is a great initiative but question is will it improve their lives or simply transfer them from one authoritative society command structure (municipality) to another? But something is better than nothing I guess. Please keep up the good work and bring it to navi mumbai too.
