MyWaste App

Waste management has become a major sustainability issue for cities, organizations and households. The corporate sector is under additional pressure due to legal and social pressures as the consumers and the general public are getting ever more environmentally sensitized. Organizations and common people are unable to figure out where to start.

Wastes are of two types, dry and wet wastes and both these types have become a menace for large cities and companies mainly because of lack of sufficient funds, expertise and technologies and the absence of at-source segregation of dry and wet waste for its ethical disposal.

Cities and companies around the world are taking the help of technology to outsmart the challenge of waste management. DrTech has been a pioneer in developing a technological solution for this purpose. MyWaste App is the state of the art technological solution that helps organizations and government utilities track the amount of waste produced and ethically dispose their dry waste and wet.
