Apaga

Uber of the Reycling Industry

Pitch

We are providing a solution that enables people all over the world to easily recycle their waste.

Recycling companies in countries like Armenia have the capacity to recycle more waste, but are unable to source it. At the same time, many people want to protect the environment by recycling their waste, but just do not have the opportunity. Apaga will solve these problems by selling waste collection capacity to recycling companies using Uber-like waste collectors that collect directly from private people. In exchange, people will be awarded with a green currency that they can use to purchase coupons for different shops. Thus, making us a platform that also sells customers for a 5% fee of each sale made with a coupon.

We want Apaga to become the world’s largest recyclables collection and distributing platform as well as the main marketplace for coupons and discounts, the marketplace of the circular economy of the future.
