On their part, waste-pickers kept their commitment of door to door collection of dry waste. In mere one year, they sent 7144 tons of dry waste for recycling and non-recyclables were sent for co-processing. With non-payment of dues, it has become a nightmare for many operators. The waste-pickers are in dire need of cash to continue their work. The dues for all DWCCs collectively amount to almost a crore (10 million). The dues are to be paid towards salaries of the driver, helper and maintenance of vehicle engaged in door to door collection of dry waste.
