Jaipur-based Ecowrap incentivises people to segregate waste at source

What if you are paid for collecting and segregating the waste in your own house? Sounds good, right? Ecowrap, a Jaipur-based start-up, is encouraging people to segregate waste at the point of collection by distributing free smart dustbins and paying them once the bins are full. Ecowrap follows a four-degree segregation, i.e., they classify waste into four categories – glass waste, plastic waste, mixed waste, including all the tetra packs, and food waste. Four smart dustbins are provided for the same. "Smart bins or IoT-enabled bins provide real-time data. When the bins are full, we get notified so that we can send a pick-up van to collect the segregated waste. The waste bags are weighed and people are paid accordingly," explains Angraj.
