Pacific Recycling Foundation Founder Amitesh Deo says their core function is to provide a structured support to individuals engaged in waste picking so that they become empowered agents that strengthens the recycling collections team to ensure that recyclables do not end up in dumpsites, landfills, or pollute our environment.
