Waste Allocation Systems

'e'-crush: an efficient tool to reduce and organise waste


Consumers, businesses and organisations are looking for solutions to better manage their waste. They want to reduce the cost of transportation, volume storage or taxes. Some efficient solutions exist but they mainly target medium to big companies.

Waste Allocation Systems SA was incorporated and its vision is to provide tools to the help people and small businesses to manage, recycle, organise and store their waste.

Our product ‘e’-crush is a patented manual compactor that reduces all types of waste: the normal waste and recyclables like PET, aluminum, metal cans and cardboards. It reduces 60 liters of waste into 17 liters. It is unique as no other manual compactor reduces currently at a ratio above 3 and can do it for recyclables too.

The product can be useful to any person willing to reduce the volume of their daily waste.
