Initiative: Kasa Kiosk
Saahas is a non-profit organisation working in the field of waste management. They believe that when waste is managed at source, it becomes a resource. They came up with Bangalore’s first manned and monitored bin-based segregated waste collection station at Wind Tunnel road, Murugeshpalya in December 2018. Nearly 29 tonnes of waste has been handled through the Kasa Kiosk, from its inception on 18th December 2018. Nearly 8395 people have handed over waste to the Kasa Kiosk, by the end of June 2019. The work done them has been recognised both in print & social media. Also, acknowledgment & appreciation for the same is done by BBMP authorities. Multiple, door to door awareness campaigns has brought about a change in people’s attitude on waste management.
