Startup Helping Recyclers Address China's Waste Ban

28 Sep 2018

Scrapo is a free online marketplace for plastic recycling that enables buyers and sellers to connect and communicate in real time.

Users can post their material in less than a minute, browse through the listings posted by other recyclers, and instantly communicate with other users using Scrapo’s real-time messaging tools.

Buyers can "follow" their favorite sellers and be notified each time they post a new material. Sellers receive on average 20 new contacts for each material posted.

Today, Scrapo has over 10,000 users from 140 countries who have posted over 1.5 million tons of recyclable plastic.

Scrapo is available as a web and mobile application (iOS and Android) and is free to join. 

Resource Recycling recently featured the company in a story by Jared Paben. You can read the full article including details on the types of plastics and countries trading in the marketplace.
