When it comes to recycling, we want to make sure it's done in the right way and that all waste picked up through Tiptapp ends up where it's supposed to - at the recycling yards.
To guarantee this, we have something we call verified recycling. Verified recycling consists of three checkpoints:
Users that have picked up waste show that they are recycling by using the app to snap a picture at the pick up location, as well as at the place of recycling. The image is saved and uploaded along with geo-coordinates and current timestamp. This shows us that all the items from the ad have arrived at the yard, during the opening hours. All recycling is checked both automatically and manually by our support team. If any of these steps are not followed or are mismatching, the user making the drop off is blocked and contacted to provide the missing information. No payments are made until the verification is complete.
