Swachh Bharat Abhiyan: A national campaign formed to start a cleanliness drive covering over 4000 cities and towns and also to bring awareness about the significance of sanitation among people.
This determined mission has evoked a sense of responsibility among us and without our dedicated efforts, this initiative will lose its gravity. Not only people but the industries, especially the waste management sector, has a significant role to play. And one such organization is ‘Extracarbon’ which helps recycle dry, solid waste to preserve the deteriorating environment.
Have you wondered where all the solid, dry, plastic waste that you give to your kabaadiwalas end up?
Presently, there is no proper segregation of solid waste and such waste is mixed with the wet waste of the streets and municipal bins, and finally goes to the disposal sites un-segregated.
As a result, the whole area in and around the disposal site gets unhygienic and poses a lot of serious threats to the environment and to public health.
‘Extracarbon’ takes up its role here and starts segregating waste at the household level and then ensures that this dry, compostable and recyclable waste gets collected separately and transported separately for processing. They collect the solid waste from the homes and deliver it to the respective factories where it is recycled. For example – the metal waste goes to the metal factories.
‘Jhoomley’ is a business entity of ‘Extracarbon’ which helps you to shop online with credits.
‘Extracarbon’ has strengthened the domestic mode of collecting solid waste by employing kabadiwalas and guiding them.
In 2o13, the company commenced its operations in Gurgaon. In its first three months, it associated itself with three societies and served 2,000 residential customers. Within one year, they expanded their business to Ludhiana with a three-member-team and reached 1000 new residential customers.
In future, the company plans to set up its own plant to convert wet waste into compost which will be located in the client’s premises or locations.
