Waste Ventures Charities

Waste Ventures changes the paradigm of 'collect and dump' garbage practices in emerging market cities into a commercially competitive model of environmental solid waste management owned by waste pickers. In doing so, Waste Ventures, over the next 10 years, will create a sector that will alleviate poverty for 20 million people and annually eliminate 350 million tons of garbage from developing city dumps.

Mission

Waste Ventures changes the paradigm of 'collect and dump' garbage practices in emerging market cities into a commercially competitive model of environmental solid waste management owned by waste pickers. In doing so, Waste Ventures, over the next 10 years, will create a sector that will alleviate poverty for 20 million people and annually eliminate 350 million tons of garbage from developing city dumps.

Programs

Waste Ventures works with the exploited group of waste pickers to create waste picker-owned cooperatives. Waste Ventures provides the cooperatives with low cost decentralized waste management technology while also embedding business skills to environmentally process waste and earn 4x the profit of the current 'collect and dump' method used currently. By doing so, they triple waste picker income, avert 70% of waste from dumps, and reduce greenhouse gas.
