Waste Ventures trains and employs waste pickers in developing countries to collect garbage door-to-door. Waste Ventures processes the garbage into compost and recyclables to sell. The result: Bringing waste pickers out of poverty, reducing 70% or garbage from reaching the dumpsite, and reducing harmful greenouse gases - with a financial bottom line.
