PROJECT STOP

BACKGROUND

Borealis and SYSTEMIQ launched Project STOP in 2017.

Project STOP uses a “system enabler” approach in which a team of experts in waste management, plastic recycling, organics management, behavior change, and program governance help a city design and then implement a low-cost waste management system in which all households and institutions benefit from collection, and plastics are kept out of the environment.

Our aim is to create sustainable, low-cost waste systems that capture as much value from the waste as possible. The many existing local initiatives and informal waste pickers are supported and integrated into the business model.

The team supports cities with investment, technical expertise, waste system design, project management, skills transfer, behaviour change and recycling/reprocessing valorisation. Project STOP does not own the waste nor operate a collection, sortation, recycling, treatment or landfill business. All profits from the sale of recyclables and organics are kept by the local community and used to cover collection and sortation worker salaries and operating costs of the waste system.
