TrashBack’s Uphinda Phindo! allows community members to have the opportunity to translate rubbish into rewards, simply by bringing items which were previously considered to be worthless.

The potential benefits of this are threefold:

  • More waste will be recycled and thus directed away from landfills
  • Cleaner communities will result, instilling pride and dignity and a greater sense of place
  • The project can provide both informal and formal employment, contributing to local social upliftment
