This is an initiative to address pollution caused by litter, while also addressing the undignified means by which waste collectors earn a living.

The solution is a network of community members setting up waste buyback centres around the pilot community of Mitchell’s Plain.

 The RLabs Digital Labs is a partnership between RLabs, SafeHub and DBSA providing an innovative response to the realities of South Africa’s urban townships. that blends the best of what tech can offer with a locally-grown, grassroots solution for youth empowerment. The Digital Labs establishes itself as a catalyst in unlocking opportunities for young people presented by the 4th Industrial revolution. Its main focus is to provide opportunities to a despondent generation of unemployed, inappropriately skilled, underprivileged South African youth and enabling them to participate in the current and future economy.
