The Problem

The problem with plastic is not the plastic itself; it is a lack of local recycling infrastructure to deal with all end-of-life plastic. There is also a lack of concerted, centralised, support for environmental plastic clean-ups. Alongside the two issues above, there is an absence of incentivisation for people to recycle their used plastic properly.

The Solution

The recycling infrastructure problem will be supported via our Global Plastic Neutral Scheme (

GPNS will oversee and support the collection of up to 90% of all used plastic from companies and consumers; direct from their place of business, homes or central collection points in towns and cities.

The lack of incentivisation will now be addressed via the GPNS RecycleToCoin App:

RecycleToCoin will reward recycling of 90% of all plastic; not just the cherry-picked most valuable plastic like PET plastic bottles. Alongside plastic you will also be able to recycle aluminium drinks cans and steel food cans. (Glass bottles to follow soon.)

When you recycle your plastic, aluminium and steel cans you will receive points which can then be swapped for rewards like electronic gift cards or other rewards from our participating reward partners.

Our scheme does away with the need for very expensive reverse vending machines. All you need to do is download our RTC App and signup. When your recycling is collected by our GPNS team or you drop it off at a local recycling point there is a very simple process to follow which will give you your reward points:

  1. The GPNS team member or collection point staff will confirm the amount of items you are recycling and input this on their version of the RTC mobile phone App.
  2. This will then produce a QR code on their mobile device.
  3. You then scan this QR code with your mobile phone and the points are then transferred automatically to your RTC account.
  4. That’s it. Simple!

Once you build up enough points you will be able to exchange these for rewards from our participating partners.

What is the real benefit of GPNS? The GPNS Scheme is a company limited by guarantee. This means that all profits made by the scheme will be reinvested back into the scheme to cover its costs and to support local environmental (beach etc.) plastic clean-ups in your areas.

  • Your waste has value. Let us collect it, or bring it to us so we can realise the value in it and support a cleaner ocean and environment.
  • The money the scheme makes will not go to shareholders as there are none.
  • It will not go to local authorities (who have started to run similar trial schemes but; only cherry pick the most valuable material) who then use that money to subsidise your waste collection which you already pay for via your council/amenity tax.
  • It will ensure that there is a grassroots recycling infrastructure built which is based on respect, trust and reward.
