The National Capital Region produces almost 8,000 metric tons of solid waste per day. Much of it is uncollected, burned or rotting, emitting toxins and gases, and polluting groundwater.
With a Global Impact Award, Chintan will develop an online marketplace and integrated mobile app to organize waste pickers and address the growing problem of trash in Delhi. This online platform will connect waste generators and waste recyclers to provide a socially and environmentally sustainable solution that improves the livelihood of waste handlers and curbs pollution. In three years, Chintan will connect 1,600 waste pickers with jobs from 200,000 waste generators, and manage 500 tons of Delhi's trash every day.
