Modern Kabadiwalas & Recyclers
• The basic idea that we have is to replace kabadiwalas
with a more sophisticated and organized method of
scrap waste collection and recycling
• The business model involves procuring waste from
various organizations, businesses as well as households
and recycling it in a sustainable manner.
• The main categories of waste that will be targeted are:
1. Food Waste
2. Paper Waste
3. Metal and Glass
• In order to judge the feasibility of our idea, we
carried out a short survey in the localities that
we wanted to target initially.
• The questions asked varied from their views
about their current kabadiwalas and their
possible reaction to a new form of kabadiwala in
Q1. How do you deal with scrap waste at present?

Q2.Are you happy with your current kabadiwala?
Q3. What are the problems faced by you while
dealing with kabadiwalas?
Q4. How often do you dispose off your scrap
Q5. Would you sell your scrap waste to a firm
which guarantees to recycle it?
Q6.Would you be okay if this company buys waste
at slightly lower rates?

Cost Analysis of Paper Recycling
Machine = Rs. 1,00,000[FIXED COST]
Collection of paper at cost of Rs. 8/kg
Four auto drivers @ Rs. 500/day
Four workers at recycling [email protected] Rs. 500/day
Cost of gas= Rs. 200/day for each auto
Therefore, Rs. 800/day
MONTHLY COSTS( 2500 kg)
Salaries: 500x4x25x2=Rs. 1,00,000
Gas= Rs. 800x25= Rs. 20,000
Paper= 100kg/day at Rs. 8/kg= Rs. 60,000
Dyes= Rs. 1000
TOTAL COST= Rs. 2,11,000
Thus, we will be able to produce 25,000 rolls of paper as 1kg
of paper is converted into 10 rolls of paper.
SELLING OF RECYCLED PAPER
After, the paper has been recycled it will be of good
quality and will be classified as recycled handmade
This paper will be sold through:
1. Stationery Stores
2. Design Stores
3. Dilli Haat and
4. School Stores
Handmade paper will be sold at Rs. 40/roll which is
lesser than market price.
This would mean that the monthly revenue will be
PROFIT= 10,00,000- 2,11,000= Rs. 7,89,000
2.Food Waste and Vermicomposting
Collection of food waste from restaurants
Preparation of vermicomposting pits
Sale of vermicompost produced to farmers
• Our business will look to enter into contracts
with restaurants to collect their daily food waste
on a nightly basis.
• For this purpose, we will have two autorickshaws for the purpose of transportation of
waste to the site of vermicomposting.
• Vermicomposting does not require much
supervision and hence only one person to
manage the pits will be enough.
• The vermicompost generated would be the
source of income for the company.
• Restaurants will get a viable way of disposing off
their food waste at the end of the day.
• Vermicompost is a very good supplement for
a) Field Crops
Quantity of raw materials
Raw materials required in a pit or tank measuring
1.5 m × 1 m × 1 m areas follows:
I. Dry organic wastes 50 kg
II. Dung slurry 15 kg
III. Rock phosphate 2 kg
IV. Earthworms 500–700(there are 2230 approx.
worms in 1 kg)
V. Water 5 L every three days
PER TANK COST
Cow dung slurry
• Cost of 1 tank which will generate about 100 kg
1 kg cost= Rs. 1.09
Selling Price= Rs. 10/kg
Therefore, profit per kg= Rs. 8.91
And profit per tank of vermicomposting=
• Initially, for the pickup of scrap waste we will be
targeting localities in South Delhi.
• As the results of our survey show, residents of
localities like Greater Kailash, Jor Bagh, Hauz
Khas, Vasant Kunj are willing to sell their scrap
waste to a new player in the market.
• As we can see these localities are based in South
Delhi as residents there are more concerned
about the environment and are willing to try new
•For the purpose of food waste, we will target restaurants in
Hauz Khas Village as these restaurants have been
embroiled in waste management controversy recently.
•These restaurants will be willing to sell their food waste to
us as they have faced the threat of being shut down as they
have been disposing off their waste in the nearby lake.
•For collection of paper waste we will enter into
contracts with offices for the collection of newspapers
and other waste paper.

Gas: Rs. 20,000 per month
Website Developing: Rs.1, 00,000
Requirement for purchasing scrap: Rs. 1,00,000 per month.
Cost of vermicomposting pits(600)= Rs. 65,000 per month
Therefore, total monthly requirement is Rs. 4,35,000( apart from machine and
Fixed= Rs. 2,00,000
Hence, yearly requirement is Rs. 54,20,000
Estimated monthly profit:
Rs.7,89,000+ Rs. 5,34,600= Rs. 13,23,600
Estimated Monthly Cost= Rs. 4,50,000
Monthly Gross Profit (taking into account some unforeseen expenses)=Rs.
Therefore, initial investment in the business will be recovered in 1 year and
from that time on the earnings of the business will become its profits.
We are looking for initial funds to start the business.
These funds as mentioned above are around Rs. 60,00,000.
