Rakesh commented on Less - make recycling a social and collective effort.

Hello Rob, your idea is very much familiar to modern time (Smartphone age) task implementation, that's by designing an app! However, the only challenge that I see is the cost that's involved in this recycle process (Chain); basically, to maintain the statistics of everyone's contribution toward recycle process.
Because when we say a social app, scanning provision for each recyclable material that's involved in the process, and etc. This adds cost, and which might hamper the efficiency of recycle process as a whole.
Definitely there is a way out for this, and I’m looking forward for this idea to grow, all the best.

Rakesh commented on Rewards for Recycle

I strongly agree with you Meena, and that's why I had mentioned - 'Those who really care about this nature and to preserve this beautiful earth to coming generations; for them, it's a duty to participate in the recycle process.' My idea was for those who seek benefit for themselves for the thing that they do.
The factories that produce recycled articles (Like Bags, recycled metal & plastic products) definitely need recyclable raw materials. And these factories can offer reward points in exchange of recyclable home waste.
Moreover, the strategy for recycling process should be carried out on the case basis, like -Location, what is the stuff that's to be recycled, and what could be the product that can be derived out of a particular recyclable material. So, my idea could be used for some location and certain varieties of recyclable materials.
