Company Snapshot

Reduce, recycle AND recurring revenue is TriCiclos’ mantra. With developed countries increasingly implementing extended producer regulations (EPR), the responsibility for waste management has shifted from municipalities to the very corporations that generate the waste – not that most Latin American governments offer recycling collection services to begin with. By providing Clean Points (CPs) – recycling stations where individuals can deposit recyclable consumer materials – and managing waste management logistics efficiently, TriCiclos is not only the most reputable post-consumer recycling company in Chile, but also the only one capable of tracking and monetizing EPR compliance. The CPs – 40-foot metal containers capable of receiving, processing and compacting up to 25 different types of materials – are placed in companies’ parking lots or municipal areas. They are forty times cheaper and 20% more efficient than other recycling platforms in Chile because of the sophisticated pre-processor unit. Notably, TriCiclos is the only company in Latin America that is a “B Corp” and can certify that over 90% of materials put into its social clean points will actually be recycled.
