Waste Capital Partners

Urban India produces a mound of garbage every week that weighs more than twice the Empire State Building. Only half of this is collected and dumped. Little is processed despite municipalities spend half their budget on the issue. Residents are fed up. Waste Capital Partners trains and employs waste pickers to conduct doorstep waste collection in small towns in India for a monthly subscription from the household itself. Waste Capital Partners then environmentally processes the waste forming a quality soil amendment they sell to local farmers and also aggregate and sell recyclables. In total, 85% of the waste is environmentally processed, 20,000 carbon tons are averted per 100,000 households, and the income of the waste picker is doubled. The business is already cashflow positive and recently secured interest from key state officials in two major states of India. Its board consists of the founders of SELCO, BASIX, and IDE-I and its management has 40+ years of operational experience in profitable social enterprise businesses with a focus on Public Private Partnerships.
