MoHUA, in partnership with GIZ, wanted to understand the characteristics of recyclable waste generated in 22 cities and how it could be handled in a better way to reduce the burden on the municipalities, leading to resource efficiency and promotion of a circular economy.
Trackbee developed two customized applications-one for waste generators and the other for waste collectors. All Geo coded data was linked to a map based interactive dashboard for M&E team.
Material flows and value chains for 30 dry recyclables were identified in major cities. The data generated is being used by Swachh Bharat Mission to develop policies for setting up infrastructure for material recycling in India.
