About Us

eTrash2Cash (eT2C Company Nigeria) is the first of its kind social enterprise in northern Nigeria, which embodies the use of technology to solve environmental problems in the low-income communities.
Its web, mobile app and SMS platform helps low income communities to earn direct cash incentives in exchange for their everyday wastes. They are sorted, processed and recycled into reusable products for use by the same community e.g organic compost from food wastes, raw material pellets from plastic wastes and tissue papers from paper wastes.

What We Do

We collect variety of wastes (plastic, paper, metals, food, glass etc) from thousands of low &middle-income earning communities and commercial hubs in Kano through scrap dealers and mobile waste managers using technology, and exchange those wastes with direct cash incentives.

Our Innovation

We use web, mobile app and sms technology to exchange wastes for direct cash incentives. eTrash2Cash also makes use of all wastes collected from communities to makereusable and sustainable end products, e.g organic compost made from food wastes for smallholder Nigerian farmers. Overall, our work helps to reduce pollution in various forms, reduces flooding in local communities, reduces deforestation and mitigates the effects of climate change.
