Egyptian waste management startup Plstka secures seed funding round

Dec 08 2021

Plstka, a waste management startup active in the delta region of Egypt, has secured a round of seed funding to help it scale.

Launched earlier this year by Ahmed Elnagar and Mahmoud Youssef, Plstka has developed an app that rewards customers for recycling their solid waste.

Using the app, people can exchange waste for discounts and coupon vouchers in various life services, including medical services and transportation, while it also provides a new in-game experience called Plstka Profitable Competition, which makes users compete with each other to raise more awareness about the environment.
