Kabadiwalla Connect is an award winning social enterprise that leverages the power of information technology to make sure our city's waste does not end up in the landfill.


Did you know that India’s five largest cities generate more than 30,000 tons of municipal solid waste everyday?


Over 90% of all this waste is collected and disposed non-scientifically, mostly in open landfills within city limits. 


Our landfills are fast reaching maximum capacity, and there is a need to find alternative ways to handle urban waste.

their waste responsibly
