Early Stage Startup


Die Recycling-App für Ihr Unternehmen

Elevator Pitch

Waste collection is outdated. Daily recycling operations, such as requesting a pickup, are still largely organised via fax and phone. This lack of digitisation results in inefficient collections, outdated processes and inaccurate data – all of which is limiting the growth of the circular economy. Hamburg based start-up Pendula, aims to change this with the launch of the Mein-Recycling app.


The app enables businesses to easily organise, document and analyse recycling services online. Efficient, easy and transparent, the app lets businesses save over 90% of time spent on administration, while at the same time reducing their environmental footprint. As an added benefit, the Mein-Recycling app takes care of compliance with a new German recycling regulation called the Gewerbeabfallverordnung.

Why we are ecofriendly

The start-up has plans to rattle the industry, and hopes to increases the efficiency of waste collection. This means no more collecting half empty containers, fewer trucks on the road, less KM driven and less fuel consumed. Ultimately the goal is to enable the circular economy, which could reduce CO2 by 450 million tonnes by 2030.
