LiveLoveRecycle is the world’s first crowdsourced recycling platform based on a mobile application that links together all the stakeholders of the recycling process to help tackle the global waste management issue.
We offer free, efficient and reliable collection recyclables service to more than 20,000 people in Beirut. With 200 requests per day we were able to save more than 500 tons of waste from polluting our sea and landfills. Our mobile application makes the recycling process easier. Our clients can easily learn how to sort their waste by scanning the products, request at the time of their convenience a pickup for their recyclables and get feedback on the quality of their sorting. At the end, they are rewarded with redeemable eco-points for their efforts towards saving our planet. The app also optimizes the best trajectories for our drivers by evaluating requests from clients and sending the appropriate vehicle (motorcycle: 2 bags; truck:15 bags), thus decreasing the logistics cost and reducing the pollution
In 2020 we will start charging a small fee of less than 1 euro per collection and we will be selling all the recyclables we are collecting; both will allow us to become sustainable by the end of the year.
