Can technology help clean up India's waste problem?

I Got Garbage (IGG) is a Mindtree initiative in the area of rag picker livelihood and solid waste management. IGG connects people who have rubbished throwaway with waste pickers. The collected waste is then sorted into glass, plastic and paper. Mobile phones are used to track the waste that is collected on a daily basis. So far, around 7000 houses are a part of this mission and the livelihood and incomes of the waste pickers has drastically improved through IGG.
