Dharavi in Mumbai is asia's largest slum but it is also the hub of small unorganized industry. It employs over 200,000 people and recycles about 80% of the waste generated in the city.

How can we make people realize that the waste they recycle in their homes can be used to incentivize this industry and maybe turn this slum into a recycling model and hub?
