About the campaign

From ‘Kabadiwala’ to Recycle Guru :

Chinnaswamy is a silent crusader who prevents Bangalore city from turning into a dumpyard. His knowledge of recycling is vast, but his contribution goes unnoticed. He, and others like him, face neglect and harassment, and receive a low income. BinBag wants the Kabadiwalas (informal waste collectors) to receive their due recognition. We call them Recycle Gurus, and believe society has a lot to learn from them.

Your contribution will help in :

This fundraiser of Rs. 1 lakh will bring the Recycle Gurus into the formal and organized sector, providing them a fixed monthly income, vehicles, and phones. The beneficiaries will be- Chinnaswamy (Domlur), Suresh (Indiranagar), Arul (Jayanagar), and Ranganath (HSR).

  • Rs. 70,000 - one second-hand pickup van to make waste collection fast and efficient.
  • Rs. 30,000 - four smart phones to enable pickup of online orders.
