Today, Global Recycling day, take a pledge to protect the environment from the comfort of your home with RECAPP. Veolia is pleased to officially announce the launch of RECAPP in Abu Dhabi, a free digital service to arrange the collection of your recyclables at your doorstep. Make a point each time you recycle; you will get rewarded for your responsible behaviours.
RECAPP is a recycling app designed by Veolia for on-demand, door-to-door collection service of your recyclables. With RECAPP, your recycling actions will be made easy and will be incentivised. To incentivise responsible behaviour, each time a user recycles, points will be rewarded vouchers which can later be redeemed through select partners.
The team ensures that all queries regarding recycling and recyclable products are resolved, along with access to tips and videos to help each user become a ‘super recycler’.
RECAPP enables a free of charge collection service of recyclable items generated by individuals such as plastic bottles and aluminium cans, with just a click of a button - and without the hassle of stepping out. Since its soft launch in November 2020, RECAPP has already gathered a community of 1000 eco-warriors in Abu Dhabi, and more than 2,5 tonnes of plastics and cans being recycled.
Jérôme VIRICEL, General Manager RECAPP, said: “RECAPP provides people with the tool they need – at their fingertips – to take charge of their green journey and make sure that their recyclables are properly recycled for the benefit of their community. By using RECAPP, everybody will be putting their neighbourhood on the path to becoming a more sustainable, faster-growing community. RECAPP is a major step for communities in the development of a Circular Economy in the UAE. We truly appreciate our early adopters for spreading the RECAPP reflex and contributing to build an Eco-conscious community in Abu Dhabi.”
