a social enterprise dedicated to creating value from waste
Blue Waste to Value (BW2V) is a social enterprise dedicated to creating value from waste. Rapid urbanization in the Kathmandu valley has made it difficult for the government to address the resultant increasing levels of waste in an efficient manner. Though there were several not-for-profit organizations working on the issue in an informal manner, there was no coordinated effort. Seeing this opportunity, BW2V was created with the idea of establishing a proper waste management system and procedure for the citizens of the Kathmandu Valley.
Since its inception in July 2014, BW2V has been working to maximize value from waste by promoting recycling, reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills, and creating green jobs. BW2V became a Private Limited organization after registering in the Office of Company Registrar, under the Ministry of Industry.
As an enterprise focusing on waste management, BW2V has taken advantage of the Government Public-Private Partnership to launch various projects and to encourage partnerships with like-minded individuals, organizations and commercial establishments in order to introduce sustainable waste management practices. BW2V has been able to capitalize on this policy by using the support, resources, and knowledge from both sectors to establish sustainable waste management models.
BW2V are committed to:
- Processing: reuse and recycling
- Logistics & Disposal Services
- A door to door collection
As a social enterprise, BW2V focuses on inclusive development, where all the stakeholders' common interest are addressed in the waste management industry. This is achieved by ensuring a joint participatory model, where BW2V brings technical, financial & managerial resources, and continues to work together with local players.
