Você Recicla is a startup focused on sustainable, innovative and technological solutions for the disposal of domestic recyclable waste and solid waste management, in line with the National Solid Waste Policy (PNRS - Law No. 12,305 / 10), Pro-Catador Program (Decree nº 7405-2010), and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the concept of Smart Cities. The company already operates in the smart collection of household recyclables through a minimum viable product (MVP) in the city of Pindamonhangaba / SP. The social inclusion project has been developed in partnership with the Municipal Secretariat of Social Assistance (SMAS) of the Municipality of Pindamonhangaba / SP, and with the Faculty of Technology of Pindamonhangaba (FATEC). The platform consists of connecting recyclable material generators, training and qualification of recyclable waste pickers distributed throughout the city, equipped with the Você Recicla application, connecting to domestic waste generators. Currently, Você Recicla has 78 (seventy-eight) recyclable waste pickers and more than 5236 (five thousand, two hundred and thirty-six) recyclable users / generators. To increase the population's adherence to responsible disposal, Você Recicla has been working to expand partnerships that make it possible to increase the benefits offered by the Sustainable Income Program. With this project, Você Recicla intends to add new features to the application in activity, build, making circular economy viable. The container store will be an interactive device, which will be a point of selective collection of recyclable household waste, offering users (small generators of recyclable waste) and recyclable waste pickers the purchase of their waste, promoting circular economy and the correct destination household recyclables, rewarding users through the Sustainable Income program. For this, the container store will integrate modules with different functions: identification, diagnosis, and purchase of recyclables, in addition to the use of technological tools already used in our applications, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud Computing. With the container store, Você Recicla will seek to consolidate its entry into the domestic waste resale market for the recycling industry. The proposed project aims to incorporate new technologies and add value to the products and services of Você Recicla, promoting sustainability through the philosophy of reducing, reusing and recycling waste, and generating opportunities for innovation in the recycling area, which has great potential, but is wasted in the country.
