How a waste management firm went digital with eWaste application


Step-Up is a waste management application which helps manage recyclable waste.

This mobile application is specifically developed for Singaporeans to help recycle their waste by dumping it in the recycle bins nearby and score CO2 points against the carbon emissions saved. Developed by Alba and backed by Singapore Government, this application segregates waste as per the defined categories and helps people earn cash and points which can be later redeemed to purchase in-app offers.
