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.

BinBag is revolutionizing waste collection by connecting Recycle Gurus to the customers through technology. We are a for-profit start-up engaged in the business of collection and recycling of electronic waste.
