Rag pickers form
an important strata of society working for a living by rag
picking from the waste, people generate. But this turns out a
cause, the society aspire, the cause of waste management and
consequently the environmental management.
pitiable for the hard work put in here and traders in this
supply chain network make the most. The other end of small
time recyclers makes, what ever they can. Though there has
been emphasis on rag-pickers rehabilitation in municipal solid
waste management rule 2000, little has been done. The PPP
arrangements or JNNURM projects do little for us and talk
more. The door to door waste collection is in fashion for the
NGOs for grants they receive, and glamorized by a few
socialites for a past time.
But still in the
days of global warming and global meltdown, the contribution
so made by us is of great significance and to represent
ourselves at proper forum - it is the organisation we build up
and now work together for safeguarding our interest.
