The Global Waste Marketplace

About Us

WasteTrade is a pioneering new online marketplace that connects the producers, recyclers and manufacturers of waste material globally. On the WasteTrade platform you can browse our live material listings and filter by preferences, whether that’s location, quantity, volume or to find a specific grade of material or recycled product.

WasteTrade’s innovative features will calculate shipping costs, compliance, documents, exchange rates and carbon footprint all at the click of a button. WasteTrade has partnered with the artificial intelligence tool ThinkCarbon to provide carbon footprint analysis of any proposed deals prior to agreement and to allow for informed and carbon-efficient decision making.

Our Mission

Screenshot 2022-04-05 at 11.47 1

In recent years our concern for the trajectory our climate is heading in has been growing. The breaking point for us was the publication of the highly alarming IPCC 2021 report that stated beyond any doubt the urgency of the situation surrounding climate change. Confronted by the scientific consensus around the climate emergency we are in, we could not sit by and watch as the world around us changes for the worse.

The IPCC report made it clear: We need to make drastic changes without delay if we hope to succeed in limiting global temperature increases to 1.5°C. Despite the immediacy of the problem, we could not see any real effort being made to hold the global economy accountable for the emissions it produces. A great deal of irreversible damage has already been done to the environment, but if we act now then we have the power to prevent the worst of it.
