We can all agree that recycling can be confusing at times. There’s an endless number of different products, each with different packaging, and the rules are constantly changing. So how can you ever be certain of whether your recycling will actually be recycled?
Well, that’s why we made Scrapp – an app designed to simplify recycling. It works by scanning the barcode found on your household items, then Scrapp will tell you exactly how to dispose of it, according to the guidelines in your area. That’s right, no more guesswork. And the best part? It’s completely free.
We believe in transparency. That why we built the Scrapp Dashboard – it shows the incredible impact of the combined efforts from everyone in our community, working together towards a greater good.

How does it work?
We’ve collaborated with genuine industry professionals to build our recycling guidance. This forms the basis for our in-app feedback. We also work with local authorities to incorporate their recycling rules into our geospatial library. This means that each time you scan the barcode on an item the guidance applies specifically to you and your local area.
When will Scrapp be ready?
We are currently open Beta testing and are scheduled for a full, public launch in September 2021. To receive all of our latest updates as soon as they go live, we recommend you join our newsletter.
