After collection, the recyclables are sold to scrap collection centers (kabaadi shops) where it undergoes further sorting and are sold to recycling centers. Then after, these recycling centers recycle the trash in to brand new products (without cutting any tree). So, the more recyclables that we collect, the more we save on our resources.

We've all been introduced to recycling at one point but that was just in theory and never implemented. Just like so many of us know Pythagoras theorem but have no clue how to use it in real life. But don’t worry, we’re here to ensure that we together create a recycling revolution!
We all love Nepal and the world we live in. No doubt! Loving also means caring. What better way to treat Mother Earth than to respect her resources by reducing, reusing and recycling? So here is your chance to be a part of this recycling revolution and give back to nature.
