Uniting both bottom-up and top-down efforts to generate an increasingly circular, net productive economy, WASTED works with diverse actors to meet evolving citizen needs at the local level.

Every week, WASTED collects plastic from over 500 local households in Amsterdam Noord. The plastic is both recycled and upcycled, supporting a neighborhood level closed-loop material system. In addition, we have a Reward System that connects local businesses with WASTED participants, motivating behavior change and tying into the economy.

Local people and businesses are the heart and soul of WASTED’s operations. It is together with them that WASTED continues advancing sustainable change in local waste awareness and action. Everyday, we are working to streamline operations and best communicate with our participants.
