Mismanagement of waste is one of the biggest challenges the world faces today. In most upcoming economies, more than 90% of waste is openly dumped or burnt, while millions of waste pickers work under severe conditions. SweepSmart is a Dutch-Indian social enterprise that builds safe, efficient and inclusive zero-waste systems based on deep and longstanding experience in waste management around the world.
