The journey of Saahas began in 2001 with registration under the Societies Act. Wilma Rodrigues, a formal journalist, founded Saahas to promote waste management practices in alignment with the very progressive Municipal Solid Wastes (Management and Handling) Rules, 2000.
Headquartered in Bangalore, we have since grown and are now operational in Gurugram, Surat, Chennai, Hubballi and Ballari. Over the years, Saahas has been innovating, incubating and propagating waste management programs focused on two key principles of “Segregation at Source” and “Decentralized Waste Management”.
