Recycle from your doorstep- ReLoop APP
Interview by Youssef Chehade and Mohammad Abdulmoti, Ecyclex Founders
Q: Ecyclex is certified and known recycling company in the UAE that has been working with organizations. However, in October 2021, you brought a recycling solution to households- to their doorstep.
ReLoop is the outcome of over 2 years of development and testing in UAE. Its official launch coincided with the inauguration of Expo2020. It is inspired by the UAE’s vision for a circular economy, the national target to divert 75% of waste from the landfills, and the demand we see from eco-conscious individuals who want a solution for recycling from homes.
ReLoop’s mission is to empower individuals to be part of the UAE’s circular economy.
Q: What materials can be recycled?
You can recycle electronics, plastics, metals, glass, clothes, paper & cardboard. Through ReLoop, you maintain traceability and records of all the quantities you recycled, and you also gain immediate cash back for the recyclables through ReLoop points which can be redeemed.
Q: How does it work?
ReLoop offers a free trial for exploring the full service with no strings attached! After the free trial the service for households is only at AED 69 per month (just as much as 2-3 cups of coffee), and covers:
👉 4 collections a month
👉 2 ReLoop sorting boxes (for plastics and paper/cardboard which are the most common categories)
👉 10% flat discount on all the ReLoop eco-products in the ReLoop Store on the app.
Q: Is it available anywhere in the UAE?
ReLoop currently covers Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah, and any household in these cities can request a collection of recyclables from the comfort of their home. In the 2nd phase, ReLoop is planning to extend to Al Ain and Ajman, and hopefully to the whole UAE afterwards.
Q: Is there an option for people to drop off their recyclables?
Ecyclex has been always giving an option to households to drop your recyclables at our facilities in Abu Dhabi or Dubai at no cost. At the moment, the recycling quantities and your impact on the environment will not update on the app if you choose to deliver.
Download our mobile app is called ReLoop and is available on both iOS and Android.
