RecyclePoints


Waste Recycling & Social Benefit venture that motivates post-consumers to recycle by creating value from everyday waste.

RecyclePoints is Nigeria’s foremost waste recycling and social benefit venture that motivate post-consumers to recycle by creating value from their everyday waste. We have developed a POINT-BASED incentive model with which we collect Pure Water Sachets (PWS), PET Plastic Bottles (PET), Used Beverage Cans (UBC), Glass bottles (GBS), Old Newspapers (ONP) and Brown Corrugated Cartons (BCC) from registered post-consumers and in turn reward them with POINTS, which when accrued can be used to redeem household items and cash. Points are allocated based on a Points Earning Chart where quantity of items are equated to the amount of points earned. The collected recyclables are further processed at our Collection and Sorting HUBs (CoSoHUB) and thereafter sold to manufacturing/recycling plants who use the items as raw materials for the production of a wide range of items, including but not limited to polyester fiber, carpets, hangers, pegs, aluminum ingots, craft papers for making carton etc.
