Wecyclers – Franchise Programme
Today, more of the waste is collected but a large portion consists of recyclable materials that we can recover to produce new goods more sustainably and reduce the flow of materials into landfills and into the natural environment.
Our solution is our rewards-for-recycling platform that incentivizes people our service subscribers to capture value from recyclable waste with points per kilogram of recycled waste, which they can exchange for monetary rewards. We built this platform on a fleet of relatively cheap, and locally assembled, cargo bikes called “wecycles” that our collectors use to pick up recyclable waste from households and deliver the materials to our collection, sorting, and packaging hubs located around Lagos. However, we have incorporated motorized tricycles, vans, and trucks to expand our reach across the Lagos metropolis and enable us to provide materials to manufacturers who turn the recyclable material into new items including tissue paper, stuffing for bedding materials, sturdy plastic furniture, aluminium sheets, and nylon bags.
In essence, we are building a low-cost waste management infrastructure using mobile tech and cargo bikes and providing incentives for people to embrace the environmentally friendly habit of recycling their waste.
Our ongoing projects which we are looking for partners includes:
Wecyclers Franchise Programme
Enabling the creation of additional jobs through these enterprises, and increasing public awareness about recycling and environmental sustainability in the communities where Franchises are established. All Franchisees are provided with Logistical, financial education, environmental education, business planning, and management support.
Specific support we are looking for:
a. Funding support for the expansion of the Franchise programme
b. Help to develop a strategy and awareness of the franchise programme.
