Nickels & dimes turned into millions of dollars for this recycler — when it automated the collection of bottles and cans — for cash! Hear the story of Clync Recycling.
What they do:
Clynk’s recycle drop-off centers have automated the process of collecting containers and making refunds.
Only a fraction of people take the time to recycle because the process is so clunky. Frank Whittier felt there had to be a simpler way to do it.
About the business:
Clynk provides bags to fill with empty bottles and cans. At a Clynk drop off center, a machine reads your bag’s ID number, scans and counts your recyclable goods, and electronically deposits a refund into your Clynk account — an account you can access anytime. In less than a year, revenues exceeded $1 million.
