Reward people for recycling

To foster collaboration and waste separation, WASTED is a community initiative in the Netherlands that turns your glass-, paper-, textiles- and plastic waste into discounts and rewards at local retailers, shops, restaurants and cafes.

The EPA estimates that 75% of the American waste stream is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it.


Making a difference

Over 1700 households in Amsterdam have signed up for the WASTED scheme and are separating their waste.

There are hundreds of other ways to solve plastic pollution
