Explain your idea in details:
Twincycler is a proposed waste recycling company that will provide environment service through collecting recyclable post-consumer waste product such as the pet bottles, aluminum cans, paper/carton and electronic waste via a mobile app called 'waste cycle'. Twincycler uses a mobile app called 'waste cycle' to collect post-consumer waste, the user of this app sends a message to Twincycler office via this app with all necessary information, which includes, the house address of the user and the mobile number, Twincycler uses this information to collect post-consumer waste from different location and then take the recyclables to a site where it will be washed and sorted. Main objectives: * To reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfills and incinerators. * Bring to an end post-consumer that blocks the gutter and drainage channel. * Reduce the greehouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change. * Sensitize the public on the need for them to recycle their waste. * Collaborate with organisations in the waste management industry for support. Activities: We go out during the weekly and monthly sanitation exercise in various communities, sensitize them on the need for them to keep their environment clean and also how to separate recyclable waste from other trash going to landfill. Innovative Approach: Twincycler uses a mobile app to collect post-consumer waste product from different location ranging from offices, household, schools, malls, shopping center, restaurant, hotels etc. This makes it easy for our team of logistic in making arrangement for pick-up.

Amadi Godwin is my name, a nineteen year old sustainability advocate, entrepreneur, an undergraduate of the university of Ilorin, kwara state Nigeria. First son in the family of four children and i'm from abia state. I chose to be an entrepreneur because I want to solve the problem of environmental degradation in the urban and rural areas through recycling post-consumer waste. I discovered that most people don't practice recycling, some don't even know what recycling is all about, what can be recycled or how to recognize recyclable waste. I had to gather my skills in leadership and my knowledge in technology to help solve the problem by building an app for collecting waste. Twincycler will not be a challenge since I have learn how to manage people and resources in various capacity. As the Team head of my group in the Lagos international up-skill conference in Victoria Island. Have been trained by various professionals in different field, Grant Thornton in corporate accounting and finance, MIT Teams in Disciplined Entrepreneurship Frame work, Dr. Iquo Uko in Marketing, Miss Beryl Ehondor in Soft Skills in business and Microbold smart system limited in Taking start up to the next level. During the Lagos international up-skill conference my team won the DSC ( Do Something Cool) exhibition prize for the best start up idea which include a free six month office in Ghana.
