ReCircle presents Mumbai’s Largest Diwali Waste Collection Drive. A joyous festival, the harbinger of new beginnings and prosperity. Shockingly, it is also the festival when solid waste generation increases by 22% (from 900MT on a daily average to 110 MT) - as a result of little knowledge of proper disposal. This number is bound to increase this Diwali. Our aim is to not add more to this.
This drive will focus on collecting all the recyclables that our moms love to clear out! All the #PuranaSaman - raddi, used cartons, takeaway containers, old utensils, etc.- during the Diwali cleaning fervour.
We are happy to share that we have partnered with St.Catherine of Siena School and Orphanage, Bandra. The amount generated from all the recyclables that we collect for Mumbai’s Largest Diwali Waste Collection Drive will go towards empowering orphaned children by providing them with educational, vocational and job training. A happy Diwali for all of us!
