Swachh and Kashtakari Panchayat Trust

The help: essential supplies for waste collectors

While many of us have the liberty of working from home, or suspending work, our city’s waste pickers continue to work tirelessly to keep our city clean and safe. The lockdown has halted the entire informal recycling economy, as scrap shops have been closed down, and this cuts off a major part of their income, leaving most of their family members jobless without essential service of solid waste collection. This pushes them to continue doing so during this outbreak to prevent worse health and hygiene disasters. These waste pickers collect, transport and sort waste on a daily basis, exposing themselves to waste material from over 10,00,000 households and more than 40,00,000 individuals. This also puts them at a very high risk of infection and transmission of COVID-19.
