Waste Ventures India
Transform the waste ‘dumping’ sector into a waste ‘management’ sector
Toter encompasses a broad network of third-party waste collectors – local scrap dealers and waste pickers – to offer household and business customers doorstep collection of any waste type and volume. Speed and reliability of waste pickups are ensured through customer rating systems and the enterprise’s scrap dealer partnership model.
Revenue streams are two-fold: from the sales of waste sourced from the app and delivered to WVI, and in the future, a small commission for each scrap dealer pick up.
Waste Ventures India (WVI) runs the operations of the Toter platform.
Tetra Pak has provided a machine and monetary support; WVI is its official and only partner for Tetra Pak collection in Hyderabad.
Sorensen Impact Foundation is a primary investor in the enterprise and offers frequent business updates and strategy support.
Sri Chakra Polyplast, a certified partner recycler, receives WVI’s plastic waste and ensures environmental and labour standards.
