The recovery of post-consumer waste in the developing world is driven by the informal waste ecosystem.
However, municipalities, multi-national brands and waste management companies struggle to work effectively with these stakeholders, and they continue to remain outside the purview of municipal waste-management systems and Producer Responsibility Organisations (PROs).
Kabadiwalla Connect helps leverage a city’s existing informal waste infrastructure in the collection and processing of post-consumer waste.
Our research into the informal sector and commercial pilots in India, Indonesia and the Ivory Coast provide strong evidence to the commercial, environmental and social benefits of forming mutual partnerships with stakeholders in the informal waste supply-chain.
