Too easy!

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.

Let US help YOU help the PLANET

We all want to do the right thing when it comes to recycling. RECAN is here to make it easier, more accessible and cause-specific. No longer will time-constraints, mobility issues and lack of knowledge be an excuse. Now you have the power to customize the way you recycle.

It's hassle-free

Don’t carry your containers, drive to the depot and wait in line any more. Our drivers will come to you and collect your RECAN bags to drop off on your behalf.

Your money back

Your RECAN bags will be counted as set credit value per bag to provide a fast reward and simplify the operation process. Credits will be deposited into your RECAN member account within 24 hours after the pick-up. Refer to our FAQ for details.

Meaningful contribution

What was once regarded as waste will now be our new currency for life-changing impact. With your accumulated refund, select causes that echoes your passion here

Recycling done right

Every single container makes a difference in shifting our community towards a circular economy. Of course, we need to reduce and reuse first before recycling takes place. We collaborate with existing depots to ensure proper processing is carried out locally.

But there is more. Bigger picture?
