A growing city like Chennai has a huge population pressure and inadequate waste disposal infrastructure is a major problem for waste collection and disposal. Due to widespread urbanization, millions of tonnes of waste are generated from residential areas, business complexes and industries. Proper sorting and management of waste is, therefore, a big challenge for Chennai.

A comprehensive waste management plan from Saahas Zero Waste can help big cities like Chennai. We utilize the latest technology and our expertise in this field to deliver solutions for waste collection, segregation, disposal or recycling. We work with all types of organizations and residents to prevent excess waste disposal in landfills.

Around 14,500 tonnes of solid waste is generated in Chennai daily. The municipal authorities are mostly responsible for segregating and recycling of the waste. Saahas Zero Waste also actively works in Chennai to reduce its waste problem. We provide our waste management services to tech parks, corporate, residential communities and construction sites.

When it comes to waste management the problems of all metropolitan cities are similar. So, at the moment, both Chennai and Bangalore are reeling under the pressure of huge garbage dumps. To help them cope with effective waste management strategies, Saahas Zero Waste coordinates with volunteers and certified vendors to reduce the waste problem.

According to the new garbage management rules, Chennai residents are required to segregate wet and dry waste. Composting is used as a preferred method for disposing wet waste.
