    I knew about this and it is no doubt a good initiative...however, I would rather give all old papers and magazines to the regular man who comes to collect them at my door step since that is his only income

    A good initiative and a novel concept, probably great for residents of Bangalore. Although like Usha, I too would prefer give such paper waste to the local people whose only income is the papers they collect from us.

    Girish, the man behind this project on an enquiry said that the facility of giving the Books will be extended soon to the other States too. There is a procedure to be followed by the users  from other States.

    In fact last Sunday I gave away old newspapers and also some items that get collected over a period of time like unusable taps, light fittings and so on..

    When I asked him what would he get for the lot he said he wd get Rs 20, having given me fifty rupees. He makes about a hundred rupees a day if he is lucky or else less than that..to carry all that stuff on the head covering it with a plastic because of the rains!!! Honestly, how difficult life is for them.

    I am fine with selling my newspapers and magazines to scrap dealer but for old books it is good to have such a place. Some months back I was in search of such a site in Delhi, I contacted a few sites but they wanted me to drop the old books at their place which was difficult for me. Such centres must have the facility to collect from the doorstep. Well, the sites I checked were asking for old books in donation for the underprivileged. I was very keen to donate but unfortunately failed to do so just because the centre was too far away from my home and they lacked the collection facility.

    Unlike some sites you contacted in Delhi, this site works in a different manner. Anyone who works and collects old news papers or any such stuff  and gives to this Site pays in terms of Books, not with cash.. One can select any genre of Books. If by any chance the book you wanted is not available, the site will get it for you. One can choose Books of their choice from their Library or through their site.

    You may ask, what this site will do with all the waste paper. This waste paper collected will be recycled to create useful things.

    In Mangalore we have a sort of Paper storage organised by the city corporation where you can hand over all your old books, news papers and magazines which is recycled.They pay for it but since there are the regular newspaper collectors doing the rounds on almost a daily basis the response is not very encouraging and we also have a circulating library n wheels where we exchange books instead of paying . I may borrow 2 books to read and give two of my own. A record is kept and a tag put on the book ..You can ask it back is and when you want or let it circulate so that more people get to read it and you also know who has borrowed it through the records kept by the person who manages it..
