Uberizing waste collection in India
Toter is an Indian Uber for waste.
The website and app connects individuals and businesses with collectors who pick up, weigh and pay for the waste at pre-determined rates per type.
The startup already collects 100,000 tons of waste per day with a network of 1,000 agents.
It's a another good example of how the digital economy can everyday tackle problems that went unsolved in conventional models.
