Tetra Pak Carton Recycling Program 

Location : Hyderabad, Chennai, Kengeri-Mysore  

Supported By : Tetra Pak India

Saahas had been collaborating with Tetra Pak from 2008 to initiate and enhance collection of used Tetra Pak cartons and send them for recycling. Saahas has vast experience in waste management and in working with waste worker community.
The program, which ended in 2016, involved creating awareness about TPC recycling in waste workers and scrap dealers and building a reverse logistics network for sending the used TPC to recyclers.

Under the program, awareness sessions were held for the waste workers to make them understand the recycling potential of used TPC. Scrap dealers were identified who could collect the used Tetra Pak cartons from the waste workers and supply them to aggregators who are equipped with storage space and balers. The aggregators are connected to the TPC recyclers who are thus assured of a steady supply of raw material.
