List of dry Waste Collection Centres in Bangalore

Coke cans, styrofoams, tetrapaks, bottles that we use daily take varying lengths of time to degrade, and none less than 10 years. Find a DWCC and recycle them!


The biodegradability of the aluminium foil you use to pack lunch? Zero. Lifespan of a glass bottle? 1 million years.  Everyday materials like styrofoam materials, batteries, tin cans, plastic coated milk cartons, nylon, cigarette butts, leather all take varying lengths of time to degrade, and none less than 10 years. With these grim figures, the best way to dispose these items is to simply reuse or recycle them. Nearly 70% of all the dry waste we throw away can be safely disposed this way.

Dry Waste Collection Centres (DWCCs) run by various agencies in Bangalore in co-ordination with the BBMP, are decentralised bulk sorting and processing facilities. Waste managers perform secondary and tertiary sorting of the waste here before finally selling it to recycling centres. Collecting in bulk provides these informal sector workers with larger returns, and creates more jobs.

They aim to keep as much waste out of the land fills/ waste dumps as possible and to help make waste useful and profitable. In the process they also educate people about the importance of segregation, and provide safe and hygienic work conditions to waste management workers. Find a DWCC near your home, make your dry waste work!
