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 worked hard to create a packaging category system that has been verified by industry professionals. This forms the foundation for our recycling guidance. We also work with local authorities to incorporate their specific recycling rules. This means each time you scan an item we use your location (with your permission of course) to provide recycling guidance that applies to you and your local area.
When will Scrapp be ready?
We are aiming to begin early testing over Christmas, with Beta tests scheduled for Spring 2021. Join our newsletter for early access and to be notified as soon as public versions are made available.
