Our hearts go out to Mamta, who collects waste from Mussoorie homes, braving the pandemic that has forced a billion Indians to stay indoors. Special thanks to Hilldaari.

    Everyone please be aware that Brut India is a news site that steals content from others, edits it and publishes it trying to pass it off as it's own. Check out this video - .

    Hilldaari is working to improve waste management in hill stations of India. The movement is currently operational in Mussoorie, Dalhousie and Nainital to improve the life chances of 233 waste professionals across these locations. They are training and setting protocols for workers to ensure safety and conducting awareness drives to ensure people continue to segregate waste with a key focus on domestic bio-medical waste.
