Tackling waste management issues for a better, cleaner world


Faro cleans up and prevents street trash and litter in developing cities. We partner up with local organizations which provide primary waste collection, and support them on three levels: implementing low-tech and low-cost solutions to valorize the waste; providing extensive training about waste management, campaigns and actions; and coördinating a global network for partners to coöperate and support each other. This allows our partners to expand their work, thus providing waste services to more people, resulting in less trash ending up on the streets and in the environment.
