About

Smart-WDC is a full-fledged product which can be placed in public places. We believe, our surroundings can be made much cleaner if people can be incentivized to throw thrash in garbage-bins. Currently, there isn't any form of incentive for people to dispose/throw garbage in thrash-bins, especially in public places where there are lots of hawkers/stores selling products in disposable containers. Our solution is aimed to solve that problem in a way it's beneficial to everyone (Thrash-producers(hawkers), thrash-disposer and the environment) Till now, we haven't found any company which has a product similar to us. Our team is the "special sauce" that we have. We all have good sense of saving environment and at the same time tech-capbilities to create a product/solution. Currently, we've have a demo ready. Since, this is a huge problem, with no products existing to solve it, entering market wouldn't be that difficult. There is a huge market for this. If we are entering the market with the current product-prototype, we'd need INR 1 million. INR 800,000 for products a. 50 Light model (INR. 6000 each). b. 50 Supreme model (INR. 10000 each). Remaining for other operational/misc. expenses. Revenue Model : 1. Corporates are willing to invest some percentage of their revenue in social causes. Ex : Company-X can install our smart-wdc at different parts of the city. If people throw thrash in it, they can get some form of reward, 2. Reports on the type/kind of waste can be shared with Govt. or concerned agencies. Ex : Company-Y is the biggest thrash producer at Eliots beach. This product will incitivize people on using the thrash-bins (as simple as that). It doesn't need any form of education/training to use it. We can increase the height of the bin, so this doesn't encourage child-labour in any form.
