Interested in Starting A New Venture? How About Waste Management?

0 Comment

It is disheartening to see mounds of waste piled up in nooks and corners in your cities. India is a land of growing opportunities and expanding businesses, and as such it generates a large amount of waste. Now, the issue with waste is, if not properly treated properly it would lead to fast-filling landfills and thus polluting the environment. People generate waste at all levels – right from their households and workplace and at all segments ie. residential, commercial, and industrial. So there should be a holistic approach to collecting and treating waste at all these levels.

Given the technological advancements, there are many app-based aggregators who can perform this collection job. Emphasis should be made on waste segregation at the points of generation and collection itself. Once the waste is segregated it makes disposal and recycling jobs easier. Here we would like to mention two of India’s leading waste management firms – Kabadiwala and Corbiz. The ‘Kabadiwala’ offers free doorstep scrap collection services to households, retailers, and industries in Bhopal. The Kabadiwala App allows users to schedule collection and even check scrap rates. Users can also see their contribution to the environment through recycling. The ‘Kabadiwala’ also ties up with commercial establishments and brands to meet their ESG targets. The platform has a presence across the entire value chain of waste collection and management. It is making efforts to promote the Indian circular economy and undertook initiatives like the first mattress recycling in Bhopal.


There is a need for the right set of policies pertaining to collection, disposal, and recycling and proper infrastructure for waste management. Because of the lack of clear policies, there is ambiguity in the minds of people and business owners which stops them from the proper management and treatment of the waste they generate. Another WM consulting firm, Corbiz is helping the citizens in this regard, having the expertise in providing regulatory assistance to management consulting and startup advisories. The firm ensures that the required licenses and certificates become available to waste management and recycling business owners through hassle-free and convenient routes. With advancements in technology, new layers of waste would be added to the environment. For instance, with the green revolution, there is a demand for the proper disposal of solar panels and lithium-ion batteries which are next in line to fill the landfills.

Similarly, you could also start a venture on these lines in your area. There is a lot of waste generated at all levels of society and you could become the next WASTE WARRIOR in your area. Starting with awareness campaigns, methods of waste collection and segregation, to recycling at individual levels, you can make a chain at standalone or consolidated levels and connect the dots in creating India’s circular economy and assisting the Swachh Bharat mission.
