Currently, Saahas converts seven tons of waste every day in Bangalore into a range of resources. However, Bangalore generates 4,000 tons of waste every day. The organization’s plan is to work with all stakeholders to bridge this gap as quickly as possible.

Main Activities of Saahas:

  • Sustainable Waste Management: To achieve the goal of Zero Waste Communities, Saahas based on demographics, socio-economic and geographical conditions suggests sustainable solutions for a society’s waste journey. They are involved in the entire process from awareness to collection to transportation and processing.
  • Sensitization & Behavioral Change: This initiative works with all waste generators namely apartments, households, schools and communities create awareness about managing wet, dry and e-waste fractions of waste.
  • Consultancy: Saahas offers services to property managers and construction companies who are in the initial stages of development of properties. It is now mandatory for all new constructions to have in-house waste management facilities. Saahas assists in helping companies fulfil this requirement.
  • Collection & Recycling: Saahas is building reverse logistic networks where they facilitate recycling of E-waste and Tetra Pak cartons. They have introduced collection boxes in apartments, schools and corporate offices for used carton collection. In addition, Saahas have linked up with various scrap dealers and waste retrievers. They also collect factory waste from different corporates. All this material is diverted from landfill and dump sites into recycling. This has also become an added source of income for waste retrievers and scrap dealers.

Saahas was awarded the Indian Circular Economy Award by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) in 2019 for the notable contributions been brought by the NGO.
