UK recycles 50% of its waste whereas Germany has achieved 60% target. In Pakistan, experts set 20% recycling target. To achieve this target and to promote waste minimization, recycling and optimization in Pakistan, DrTech has developed and powered an online platform as Kabbaria.com. The live portal is a hub of different scrap dealers who run an informal network of scavengers earning their living through collection and segregation of waste.
The purpose of the platform is to provide hassle free and ethical disposal of waste materials produced in households, industry, agriculture and other sectors that eventually end up in landfills. The platform is an online market of thousands of buyers and sellers of different kinds of waste materials such as Metals, Scrap Electronic Devices, Compost & Food Waste, Glass & Fiberglass, Liquid Oil & Chemicals, Minerals, Plastic and Textiles & Leather etc.
The platform is being used to upgrade the whole waste collection market by upgrading the traditional scrap dealers to Green Shops and bringing the informal workforce of scavengers into formal economy. The users can advertise and respond to advertisements through the Kabbaria network.
Kabbaria.com provides an inventory of recyclable material through a search engine that automatically searches the required items for the registered buyers. It also provides the option of home delivery of purchased items through a network of service providers at a nominal cost.
