Our main objective is to develop an easy and effective system that takes care of collection, segregation, and transportation of the material to the waste disposal facility which is approved by MPCB and CPCB as a professional agency. These materials are also used in Cement Kilns, pyrolysis, road construction, and recycling center on the basis of their quality.
