Blue Waste to Value (BW2V) is a social enterprise dedicated to creating value from waste. With the rapid urbanization in the Kathmandu valley, waste was becoming an issue which was not being addressed in a proper manner. The government found difficult in addressing this problem and in this vacuum there were several not for profit organizations working in an informal manner. Seeing this opportunity BW2V was created with the idea of establishing proper waste management system & procedure for the Kathmandu Valley. Since its inception, BW2V has been working to maximize value from waste by promoting recycling, reducing the amount of waste send to the landfills, and creating green jobs.
BW2V became an official organization after registering with the Office of Company Registrar, under the Ministry of Industry in July 2014. As an enterprise focusing on waste management, BW2V has taken advantage of the Government Public-Private Partnership to launch various projects. 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.
Through our projects, we encourage partnerships with like-minded individuals, organizations & commercial establishments to introduce sustainable waste management practices. BW2V and its partners are committed to effective waste management services:
- Processing: reuse and recycling
- Logistics & Disposal Services
- 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 joint participatory model where BW2V brings technical, financial & managerial resources & continue to work together with the local players.
