Bengaluru-based startup, Saahas Zero Waste, has won the ‘Swachh Best Practice Award’ instituted by the Swacch Bharat Mission (Urban). Saahas was chosen for its zero waste programme for bulk generators.
The award was formally presented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Indore on Saturday. Saahas Zero Waste is a socio-environmental enterprise that believes in a circular economy, where all waste is converted to resources.
In this context, the startup provides decentralised waste management solutions, including onsite management of wet waste and onward transport of other categories of waste to authorised end destinations.
Another city-based startup, Daily Dump, was awarded the ‘Swachh Entrepreneur Award.’
