In response to local waste crisis, a Nigerian initiative sends out cargo bikes to collect and recycle garbage in low income neighborhoods.


Households and individuals sign up to the free program to have their homes added to collection route.

Families use an SMS based program to recycle their bottles, plastics and cans, and receive points for each kilogram of waste.

These points can be redeemed for basic food items, household goods or cell phone minutes.
