Samarthanam’s environment initiative, Parisara, started in 2003, is a dry and e-waste management programme collecting, segregating and recycling waste to significantly lessen the burden on landfills. It emerged as a reliable waste management programme partnering with various corporate houses, residential societies and schools. With its modern technology, transport facility, equipment and service, the programme is an efficient waste management model for sustainable development.

“Well-being Out of Waste (WOW)” is another recycling programme, initiated in 2007, by the Paperboards and Specialty Papers Business of ITC in association with Samarthanam. It is a corporate level programme ensuring proper segregation, recycling of waste and creates a sustainable livelihood for the participants involved in the waste management process.
