a digital platform supporting a circular economy for plastic waste
Creating fairer, more circular markets for plastic waste.
Our Wastebase DEAL app connects informal waste collectors with local recyclers and reprocessors.
Collectors get transparent pricing and transaction execution. Reprocessors get improved quality and consistency of supply. Read one collector's story here.
