Many would say Noida-based Manik Thapar is wasting his life. But he sees enormous potential in garbage. Founder of Eco Wise, a waste management company, Thapar realised that every Indian detests bureaucracy and filth. “There isn’t much I can do to change bureaucracy, but a lot can be done to clean India,” says Thapar.

His employees collect garbage from Noida residents and segregate it into recyclable and non-recyclable. Only 15 per cent of all garbage is sent to the landfill. The recyclable waste is sold. Eco Wise recycles 2,000 tonnes of waste a year.

The future Thapar says he sees his company as the most innovative and profitable waste management company in India in the next five years.
