TETRA PAK PACKAGES COLLECTION AND RECYCLING
Saahas has an ongoing program with Tetra Pak India Pvt Ltd for collection and recycling of post consumer cartons. Saahas has introduced collection boxes in apartments, schools and corporate offices for collection of the same.
In addition we have also linked up with various scrap dealers and waste retrievers. Currently on an average we collect around 10 tonnes of waste material which have been diverted from landfill and dump sites into recycling. This has also become an added source of income for waste retrievers and scrap dealers.
The Tetra Pak packages collected are sent to Daman Ganga Paper Mills in Vapi. The paper component which makes up about 75% of the package is recycled back into paper products. The rest which includes polyethylene and aluminium is recycled into different products including roofing. sheets
Notebooks made from recycled paper are also available for sale at Saahas
