Dry Waste Collection Centre

About this Project

Consult < Design < Build < Implement and Transfer < Maintain

With a former waste picker running a centre set up by the municipality, this is a great model to replicate. The centre was completely upgraded including rebuilding, storage platform, conveyor belt and baler within 3 months thanks to great partnering with Hasiru Dala and BBMP.

What's great about it?

  • Independent waste picker team trained in managing a small factory
  • Capacity tripled from 1.25 tonnes per day to 4 tonnes per day
  • Upgrading 10 more BBMP centres based on this example
