Whether you live in a city in Nepal or are just passing through, it’s hard to be oblivious to the fact that Nepal is choking under its own garbage and we are choking with it!
A tremendous amount of waste and filth is created daily due to unplanned urbanization, poor municipal management and lack of awareness. Unfortunately, due to lack of access to convenient services that allow appropriate disposal of waste, recyclable waste that could be used to generate marketable products is either lining up our streets, choking our rivers or ending up in landfills.
Doko Recyclers was born out of a desire to manage the tall garbage heaps and overflowing landfills of Kathmandu. This first of its kind social venture aims to solve Nepal’s ever-growing waste problem by streamlining the informal recycling industry and bring innovative solutions to make recycling significantly more efficient for everyone. The end result is hassle free services for managing your waste, as well as increased recycling rates and lower carbon emissions for the planet. Our objective is to make sure that the waste we create doesn’t end up on our streets or landfills but instead positively impacts our environment and economy. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
