Piles of trash strewn across Kathmandu serve as a daily reminder that we can better our communities, health, environment, economy, and future, simply by being sustainable. Doko Recycler’s model is based on Nepal’s already existent culture of buying and selling recyclables like paper, bottles, and scrap metal parts. The challenge lies in expanding our recycling practices to include other materials, relaying the environmental impacts of dumping in landfills, and focusing on conserving raw resources rather than extracting them. We do exactly this and In doing so, we aim to bring about behavior change in how and what we consume by reducing, reusing, repairing, repurposing, rotting, and recycling.
So, we at Doko, implement methods to help you segregate your waste at its source into different categories before it enters our waste stream. Once it enters our waste stream we continue to separate your waste into different recyclable categories ensuring that the right materials get to the right industries. These industries then extract and reuse existing resources from the waste you give us to create new goods. Our shredding, e-waste, and composting services in addition to our waste pick ups, awareness training workshops, and waste segregation infrastructure setup all allow you to do this instinctively in your own homes and office spaces.
We truly believe that because the simple act of waste segregation can tremendously reduce landfill impact, it should be a mandatory act at an individual, household, and corporate level. In order to achieve this, we developed our model and services to offer a series of waste management solutions that enable you to easily practice Smart Sustainability and support a growing green and sustainable circular economy.
