Growing population coupled with lack of awareness has led to heaps of garbage every day. They are visible not only in the main cities but also outskirts of the main cities.
Around 80 percent of the garbage is an amalgamation of carbonic by-products and dirt that is polluting the ecosystem and spreading epidemic diseases.
Keeping such issues in mind, Anurag Tiwari, a finance graduate, came forward and founded a company named Rekart in which it collects recycling garbage from doorsteps of people.
Anurag is a native of Kurukshetra, Haryana, and after completing his education he worked in corporate for two years.
Started with advertising agency
But he always wanted to do something extraordinary so he approached his friend Rishabh Bhatia and started an advertising enterprise whose annual turnover reached Rs 5-10 crore. But a few crores were not going to quench his thirst. He wanted to do something that did a turnover of Rs 100 crores annually.
Life changing trip
On one fine day, Anurag was travelling from Faridabad to Gurgaon by road and saw a hill of garbage on the roadside. He realised most of this garbage was recyclable. An idea clicked in his mind and he set out not only to clean the city but also recycle all the waste material.
Collecting waste from homes
To transform his idea in reality, he discussed it with his two friends Rishabh and Venkatesh. Both of them were more than ecstatic to collaborate with him on the idea. They closed the advertising company and started a firm Rekart which collected waste materials from 25 lakh homes of Delhi and 50 apartments from Gurgaon.
Turnover of 15 crore
A present, the turnover has reached over Rs 15 crore annually and are working hard to increase this. There are more than 11 employees working on their payroll.
Hike in income
Anurag has brought tremendous changes in the life of garbage collectors and junk dealers associated with him. Garbage collectors who earned Rs 100 to 200 earlier are making Rs 500 to 700 now. There has been considerable change in the life of more than 100 junk dealers, too.
Focus on dry waste
His company primarily focuses on dry waste collection, transportation, and recycling. It includes plastic, cardboard, metal and bio-metric wastes that are separately sold to various recycling plants. The customers have to give merely a missed call and the garbage is collected from their doorstep.
