Kabadiwalla Connect is a waste management company that provides decentralised waste collection and processing solutions for cities in the developing world.

An important aspect of this initiative is to promote proper segregation and repurposing of collected plastic waste by the waste handlers and other partners in the waste management supply chain, it stated.

"As a responsible corporate working together with industries on enabling sustainable processes and circular economy, we acknowledge the local collection and segregation of battery waste for recycling and reuse of extracted battery materials," said Ashok Thakur, Director at Customized Energy Solutions Europe BV.

CES is working with the EARTHDAY.ORG on imparting technical knowhow and training on battery waste segregation and sustainable recycling among waste handlers and other stakeholders in the waste management chain.

Karuna Singh, EARTHDAY.ORG Regional Director of Asia said the global theme for Earth Day 2024 is 'Planet vs. Plastics', and called for an end to plastics, fostering the development of affordable and readily available biodegradable alternatives. "Our partnership with CES, Kabadiwalla Connect and Surf Turf will play a crucial role in achieving these goals," Singh said.
