The project aims at empowering landfill scavengers with the education, and vehicle required to operate as a door-to-door waste collector on our mobile app. This project will demonstrate how the waste management system in Lagos can be improved by digitizing the landfills (transforming the landfill from physical location to a digital entity), and aiding scavengers operate as collectors. With the app, collectors will be alerted to areas where large quantity of clean and sorted recyclables are available for pick up. We believe a proof of the concept with 5 scavengers will open the door towards obtaining soft-loans to institutionalize the concept
