Takacycle deals with smart waste collection in a populated community at a low cost and captures waste value by recycling collected waste into other products. i.e organic waste into animal food.

Important tips of Circular Economy Concepts

  1. Product cycle

Waste products should be the raw materials for another process: either a by-product or recovered resource for another industrial process.

2. Recycling opportunities

Environmentally friendly choice of materials or product packages should be used in business enterprises to offer recyclable by-products to be used for other industrial processes.

3. Close-loop system
