Scavengers to Managers


Organization : Chintan Environmental Research and Action Group


Location : Delhi


Project Description

  • Chintan works with partners such as the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam, a range of RWAs across the Delhi region, Safai Sena and other agencies to help set up solid-waste handling systems that result in green jobs. In most cases, this involves doorstep waste collection. In the NDMC area, we have been contracted to serve over 6000 households as well as other establishments.
  • Chintan also works with informal doorstep waste collectors to help them formalize their work through legal contracts with RWAs. In Ghaziabad, Chintan has worked with Safai Sena to provide professional doorstep collection services to over 20,000 households.
  • Apart from doorstep collection, Chintan has trained wastepickers to handle waste from several offices, hotels, malls, large buildings, restaurants and railway stations.
  • In many places, Chintan also trains households to segregate waste, and community workers in low-income areas to set up and run low-cost systems to handle solid waste.
  • Chintan handles over 10 tonnes of waste a day through its solid waste programme.
  • Chintan worked with e-waste dismantlers for over 3 years to set up an association, 4R, in January 2009. It now helps 4R when required so that it may set up a dismantling factory and create a replicable model.
