To ensure a comfortable future for future generations, ambitious waste targets have been set. We need to drastically reduce our waste production, and what we collect needs to be recycled.
By picking up reusable and recyclable items from people's homes, we prevent them from ending up in the trash. As we collect each stream separately, we also avoid the contamination of recyclable materials. This is how we will help you reach your waste targets.
Most of the items that we pick up, would have otherwise ended up in the trash. This results in unnecessarily high costs of waste transport, processing and incineration.
As we make sure that the items that we collect are reused or recycled in the right way, we help you to save money on waste incineration.
Our innovative technology enables us to collect reliable data regarding the behaviour and preferences of our users. So far, we found that the traditional methods of reusing and recycling are being seen as too complicated and time-consuming.
This is how we came up with Byewaste, the only user-centric solution to this issue. Because we are in direct contact with citizens, we help municipalities to play into their needs and build better relationships.
Moreover, implementing Byewaste in your area is a clear sign that you care about the planet.

“With help from CityLab010 (Rotterdam’s platform which supports social entrepreneurship), Byewaste wants to simplify the reusing and recycling processes in Rotterdam — leading to a cleaner and more sustainable municipality.”
“The municipality is pleased with the initiative. Just like in the rest of the Netherlands, Capelle wants to decrease the production of residual waste by promoting reusing. The city's Waste Plan contains various measures to improve the separation and recycling of waste. Thanks to the Byewaste service, it has now become even easier to give useful items a second life.”
“To give the clutter around you a second life is the slogan of Byewaste. A great mission, but how do you get the public to declutter? Byewaste lowers the threshold for recycling by picking those items up for free, by means of an app that excels in user-friendliness.”
“Byewaste is fighting the waste problem in our country. On an annual basis, many reusable objects and materials get lost among the residual waste because they are not being recycled. Byewaste gives items that people no longer use a second life by collecting them from peoples' houses for free.”
