RecyclePoints is a waste recycling social benefit venture that collects recyclable waste materials from registered households, and in turn rewards them with points, which they can accumulate and redeem for cash or other useful items offered through the iRecycle Store.

RecyclePoints also employs members of the youth called the ‘Wastebusters’ to ride electric tricycles and collect door-to-door recyclable waste such as plastic bottles, aluminium cans, newspapers, or cartons. These are then processed at a Collection & Sorting Hub by unemployed women from disadvantaged the communities, and sold on to recycling plants
