IT and waste collectors in Bangalore

Posted by on August 1st 2014

“Bangalore’s streets have always been a concoction of smells, from roasting coffee beans to the doughy sweetness of local bakeries. But the one smell that will probably invade your senses today is the foul stench of garbage.

While most of us would crinkle our noses at this stink, waste-pickers busily scavenge through the garbage heaps every day, looking for recyclable items that can help them earn a living. In doing so, they also do the environment a favour.

Having realized their potential, Bangalore, the IT hub of India, is now using its expertise to empower these entrepreneurial environmentalists and solve the city’s garbage crisis.”
