QUÉ ES TRICICLOS

TriCiclos is a cultural change B Corp masqueraded as a recycling company.

We believe in Circular Economies.

TRICICLOS

The history of TriCiclos began in 2009 in Chile with the dream of creating a company based on the triple bottom line of sustainability. From this legal commitment came the name and the permanent objective of work balancing the three cycles (social, environmental and financial). Currently our headquarters are in Brazil and we are starting activities in several countries. We are proud to have been the first certified B Corp outside North America.

OUR MISSION

We want to make sustainability contagious. We see waste as a consequence of consumer habits and the current development models; and we understand there are continuous opportunities for change whether in cultural or in production processes, through which we can achieve in a positive way both recycling cooperatives that provide services on our Clean Points, and companies, government or citizens, allowing the construction of more sustainable habits in our society.
.

WASTE IS A DESIGN ERROR

Our biggest challenge is to bring a conceptual change in the way people relate to the products they consume. We want people to be able to identify when a product actually contains recyclable materials in the same way they realize when a product is designed to prevent their only final destination in a landfill. We believe in the urgent need to establish circular economy models as pilar for sustainable development.

RECYCLING CONSCIOUSNESS

We work to enhance recycling globally, ensuring that those materials that pass through our operations will have a final destination in recycling industries. We create spaces and procedures to take care of recyclable materials and show new cycles that add value to the materials. Our contribution is to operate systems bringing knowledge and information to society that is ever aimed to raise the standard of commitment to local regulations.

CHANGING HABITS

Change begins in our buying habits and how we make the choices for the products we consume on a daily basis. This means we must learn to give preference to reusable elements. Recycling can be facilitated with a simple separation of the material to enable the flow of each one in their respective industrial process. This is achieved through small actions, often by simply eliminating organic waste residues that might be present in its packaging; and doing basic sorting of the materials. Small simple actions to the consumer that often end up enabling massive recycling as the mixed or contaminated material damages and negatively impacts this process. The preparation of clean and segregated materials makes a huge difference to the final result of recycling. The big shift towards this more responsible culture and consumption will come through a gradual and continuous change that starts with you.

RECYCLING STATION TRICICLOS

Una experiencia única

RECYCLING STATION TRICICLOS is a place where citizens can understand trash as a consequence of their consuming habits, and learn the true concept of recycling while experiencing the first stages of this process. Our voluntary delivery point model also functions as a mini waste sorting facility. Its conception ensures greater logistics efficiency and generates significant impact on street waste pickers or Cooperatives through a partnership in providing service, offering quality environmental education and benefiting the surrounding community.

The result is a guaranteed destination of the materials and reliable data generated from the model, allowing traceability from the moment we receive the recyclables at the Recycling Station TriCiclos to their entrance in a recycling industry. This is how our system functions as a triple bottom line model.

We dare to suggest that the solution to a more sustainable waste management has to go through a change in consumer habits. Perhaps this is the most relevant element of TriCiclos’ model.

Differentials

High standards of quality service

TriCiclos proposes to always deliver a differentiated service with special attention to our customer, be it company, government or final consumer. We like to be recognized for the high quality of our service and the internal culture of our team. We generate information and knowledge to map and improve the performance of products that pass through our operations, creating excellent opportunities for all customers.

Transparency of the processes

We have a strong commitment to the accuracy of information we process and reports we deliver to our stakeholders. We work transparently with our clients, adding value through our knowledge of design and production processes of mass consumption systems.

Traceability of the materials

We guarantee 100% traceability of materials received in TriCiclos’ model.
Therefore, we can only received those materials for which we can ensure a sustainable destination and our team is constantly working to generate new processes for other materials that can not be recycled in some geographic areas.

Inclusion and dignity of waste pickers/cooperatives

Our principles drive us to rescue and dignify the work of waste pickers and cooperatives, helping them to become service providers and to increase the value of recyclable materials mainly by encouraging consumer education. That way they may acquire community recognition and cease to depend on the floating market value of most materials they sell. This commitment increases our triple positive impact model (environmental, social and economic).

B Corporation

To be a B Corp is a way to demonstrate our commitment to the triple bottom line, helping to solve the problems of humanity, aspiring always to apply best practices contemplating the financial sustainability as a mean and not necessarily as the main purpose.

The range of materials received in Recycling Stations can vary according to the infrastructure of the place and its geographic location.
