Saprofit / cart


In Turkey, the collection of recyclable domestic waste is done mostly by street collectors,
who work in hard conditions and without being registered. One solution can be the
integration of the street collectors within a municipality system. Saprofit is designed to fit
in such a scenario. Saprofit can easily move on different surfaces. It is easy to use at
sidewalk ways and ramps thanks to its wheel construction and the materials combination.
It can squash and classify the waste materials. The reflector bands helps safety in traffic.
Saprofit’s aesthetic look is compatible with a city identity.
