Finalist, Sustainability Award, 2023

Recykal LogoThe digital Deposit Refund System (DRS) developed by Recykal is an innovative digital solution that leverages technology to address the challenge of plastic waste management and promote environmental sustainability. The DRS is a closed-loop system that involves the collection, processing, and recycling of plastic waste, creating a circular economy that helps reduce carbon footprint and mitigates the impact of climate change.

The DRS is a digital solution that uses a mobile app to facilitate the deposit refund system. Customers receive a small deposit refund when they return plastic packaging, incentivizing them to participate in the collection and recycling process. The digital platform allows for easy tracking and monitoring of the plastic waste, enabling real-time data analysis and decision-making. This data is used to identify areas that need improvement and to optimize the waste management process.

This collaboration ensures the participation of the community in the waste management process and promotes inclusive growth and socio-economic development. The success of the DRS in Kedarnath has led to its expansion to other locations, promoting sustainable waste management practices and contributing to the fight against climate change.

The digital nature of the platform enables real-time monitoring and analysis, facilitates collaboration between stakeholders, and promotes inclusive growth and socio-economic development.
