A young start-up company Circula Recoon makes it possible to turn waste into valuable resources for sustainable production through the Trash Panda app. Trash Panda is a recoverable waste collection and coaching app which collects your recyclables and brings them to the proper facilities.
Through the Trash Panda app, users can book recoverable waste collection services for collecting segregated recyclable waste, track the collector’s location and route towards the collection point, and earn cashback from direct sale of collected items to recycling facilities.
Here are the steps on how it works:
STEP 1: Prepare your segregated recyclable items for collection.
STEP 2: Book a collection.
STEP 3: Wait for the collector to arrive at your location.
STEP 4: Track where the collected recyclables go.
It accepts plastics, paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, tin cans, or any other items that can be recycled. Trash Panda collectors will collect and bring these recyclable items to their partner facilities for recycling and processing. Check out the complete list of items they collect here.
As of July 1, Trash Panda is currently only available for select areas within Metro Manila and Rizal Province in the Philippines.
