How It Works

RecyclePoints harvests recyclables directly from post-consumers

RecyclePoints harvests recyclables directly from post-consumers thus generates very neat materials that have not been co-mingled with dirt. This adds huge value in the recycling process as it reduces the cost of washing and assures better quality material free from contaminants.

The collected recyclables are further processed at our Collection and Sorting HUBs (CoSoHUB) and thereafter sold to manufacturing/recycling plants who use the items as raw materials for the production of a wide range of items, including but not limited to polyester fiber, carpets, hangers, pegs, aluminum ingots, craft papers for making carton etc.

We operate a drop-off and door to door collection of the following Recyclable items

Pure Water Sachets (PWS), PET Plastic Bottles (PET), Used Beverage Cans (UBC), Glass bottles (GBS), Old Newspapers (ONP) and Brown Corrugated Cartons (BCC)

Recycle any of these materials and earn RecyclePoints to Redeem/Shop for cash/household items on our iRecycle Store
