Thank you for your proposal!

We really appreciate how your idea could be really scalable and could increase the transparency in the recycling process for consumers. However, we felt that there is possibly more benefit for the middle man than households. We were somewhat unsure of the value added overall. If significant value could be produced, then would an app such as this already be on the market? Furthermore, we understand that there is tremendous recycling occurring at landfills located in Indian cities. Would there be much incentive on the household level to participate? Overall, we enjoyed your proposal and best of luck as the contest continues.

Thank you for your proposal to the Climate Colab contest!

Could you expand this service to be a reverse ebay provider, where kabadiwallas advertise prices for waste streams so that people can shop around and get the best prices for their waste in their neighborhood? That would be a great addition to the app and people would use it to sell their waste at the highest market prices to the kabadiwallas.

Good luck with this business and for this next round of iteration!

How are you incorporting 'green waste' - i.e. food waste and RO water waste into your plan - You can organise demos and workshops for people to discard green waste for further use in horticulture.

Hi Poojal, yup, we hope to organise workshops and provide relevant information that helps people compost and set up simple roof-top gardens at home.

Good day Siddharth,

Would the app be able to tell the user which waste (which emits powerful greenhouse gasses like methane) can be combusted to release a more tame greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide?

If so, the biomass or municipal waste burning flame temperature can be enhanced for electrical power generation according to my proposal.

I'll vote for you. Please consider voting for me if you see some synergy

Kind regards,

Dimoir

Most people know where their local recycling shop is for most common things. Your app should concentrate on the more unusual recyclables. Also lot of toxic wastes are thrown into regular garbage, things like batteries, sharps ( needles), oils etc. There are no places to dispose these safely. Will you be promoting local laws, to safely dispose these?

Why the name Kabadiwallah, when you are based in Chennai? This is a Hindi word, unknown to most Chennaiites. You have to now educate them about the meaning of the word, so that they can then use your app. Perhaps a different name, based on the locality the app serves would make more sense.
