Coliba is a start-up that connects households and businesses with formal waste collectors. Depending on the quality and quantity of plastic bottles, recyclers are rewarded with points that can be converted to data (for internet), cosmetics and, for households in need, basic food items.

The recovered waste is then transformed into ready-to-use material, which is sold on to manufacturers (automobile, textile, construction) and all the companies who may need it.

Start-up Stories

Coliba took part in Start-up Stories season 2.
