TriCiclos exists because “waste is an error of design.” Founded in Chile in 2009 and inspired by William McDonough's design work, TriCiclos runs one of the most efficient recycling networks in South America. The Puntos Limpios (or clean points) provide recycling services, sustainable consumption education, and dignified job opportunities for street waste pickers in Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Argentina. To date, TriCiclos recycling solutions have served more than 3 million people. TriCiclos is the first certified B corporation outside North America and is a member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s CE100 and New Plastics Economy initiative.
