Are you in waste management?
Packa-Ching is a separation-at-source recycling business that aims to reduce the amount of recyclable packaging material that goes into landfills and litters the environment. A mobile unit (truck and trailer) travels between communities to buy recyclable waste from the public (focusing specifically on low income areas and informal settlements). Packa-Ching’s vision is to change consumer behaviour by paying for recyclable waste.
