This solution brings awareness about waste and the problems it brings. Currently, this zero-waste technique manages 20 tonnes of waste in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad, in offices and tech parks, institutions, and residential complexes.
The Saahas Waste Foundation partners with waste generators to support and implement best practices in waste, enabling them become zero waste entities. Through Waste Audit and Consultancy programs, they help customers understand their waste and plan an end-to-end solution for all the types of waste generated. Their Smart Waste Program offers bulk waste generators, including companies and tech-parks, an on-site waste management system. A waste management centre is embedded within the campus so that the processing of wet waste and the recovery of dry waste can take place at source.
90% of all solid waste, generated within any kind of community - residential, business or office complex, can be converted to resources. This zero waste situation means a proactive waste management system that is efficient and makes redundant the need for large landfills and dumpsites. Additionally, Saahas also works with packaging companies and brands to create and execute a reverse logistics channel where post-consumer waste is aggregated and dispatched to recyclers, and the sale of recycled products then helps their customers close the loop.
Saahas's 100% recycled paper products are made from recycled Tetra Pak cartons, and the zero-waste management program helps in the clearing of 20 tonnes of waste.
The surroundings are clean in a zero-waste environment which ensures better and healthier lifestyles for the citizens of the country.
The waste management program generates employment for people at every step of its technique, thus generating employment and eradicating poverty.
