We are a sustainable start-up
fighting waste since 2020.

In the waste industry, many usable goods get lost in the trash due to the many flaws of traditional recycling methods.

We are here to change the path.

We focus on

Hand die plant vasthoudt


We raise the environmental
awareness of our users and build
more sustainable communities.

Take action and start a collaboration.

I’m Tommaso, one of the founders of Byewaste. This means that I am responsible for building the best and most passionate team and making the world waste free. I started Byewaste because I couldn’t believe that the only practical solution to recover value from these objects was to forget about them or at most incinerate them.

I am Francisco, an entrepreneur and scientist with a PhD in process. My area of expertise is the development of circular economy. The last couple of years, I have been developing technologies for the recovery and recycling of waste in the Netherlands. I am a co-founder of Byewaste: a community-driven solution for the separation and recycling of household waste. We especially focus on materials that are harmful to the environment when mixed but which can be recovered as raw materials when properly separated. I am convinced that new knowledge and technologies can be used intelligently to create profitable innovation and a truly circular economy.
