Our vision and mission
We see a world without waste, that’s our vision. It’s a tough one but if we can work together we can get there. Our mission is to bring people together for a waste-free world. We use IT and smart logistics to bring all those in the waste chain together to save as much waste as possible. From businesses to transport partners, processors and local governments.
Waste is a growing worldwide problem. Each year we burn 2 megatonnes of waste per year, in the Netherlands alone. That’s the same as 40,000,000 cargo bikes full of valuable raw materials. In the metropolitan region of Amsterdam 8.5m tonnes of business waste is generated and 1.1m tonnes of household waste. We cannot continue wasting in this way, if we want to move towards a circular economy by 2030 and slow down climate change.
Our platform and supporting app allows businesses, at just the click of a button, to arrange for their waste to be collected. The waste is matched with a circular processor that upcycles it into new products giving it a new life; for example coffee residues become soap, food waste becomes biogas.
If there isn’t a ‘match’ the technology ensures that waste is taken away in the most efficient and sustainable way, utilising the existing transport network for maximum efficiency, less traffic and reducing CO2 emissions.
