As a part of its Donate Waste (Kachra Daan) initiative, United Care Development Services (UC) works with Residential, Office and Academic communities to Reduce, Segregate and Donate waste. Dry waste items are usually donated once a month on the last weekend. Items like papers, plastics, glass and metal are picked up by a waste recycler (Raddhiwala) from the local area. Electronic waste items are handed over to specialised e-waste recyclers. UC facilitates in linking the community with the waste recyclers. The value generated from the dry waste can be donated by the community to support some of the Health, Education or Environment projects supported by UC.
During these donation camps, residents also donate old books and clothes, which are then redistributed to people who need them. UC also provides support to set up compost centers in these communities, so that their food and garden waste can be locally converted to organic manure, rather than being transported to landfills.
The Donate Waste initiative is very much a citizen driven initiative, which simultaneously delivers environmental outcomes and also resources to support other social causes.
