The color-coded recycled plastic bins with a handle and lid seem the best for handling. Please opt for them. Bins without lids cannot be left outside for door collection in homes that are locked during day. Also without color coding its very difficult to see segregation happening.
Every member of the family in every home is responsible and so basic things need to be taken care. If people say they have bins already – ask them to stash it for use later – no bin is going to last a life time after all.

The following vendors operate in their own unique models and collect dry waste at our door step. You may also reach any local small recyclers who do a decent job too except for e-Waste.

Most of the above vendors and local recyclers will take most of your stuff except thin plastics which you need to accumulate and reach out to Sudha Pillai of Ganesh Enterprises (9962412833). She will arrange to pick it up in bulk. They are into plastics to fuel apparently – probably the best way to dispose thin plastics as of now with Corporation too not doing a great job of shredding them for road laying.
