I Got Garbage is a Bangalore-based initiative that creates new solutions for waste management in India. Its mission is to integrate rag-pickers into the city’s waste management system by making them professional service providers. Rag-pickers, who would otherwise survive from scavenging and selling recyclables from garbage heaps, are invited to take on a leadership role in the city’s waste collection. I Got Garbage uses Cloud andmobile technology to create an innovative waste management system between users and former ragpickers.
