Perdere Non Vastum is a team of young individuals from South Africa, the Netherlands, and Belgium. They aim to address the problem of unsustainable waste management, high-density urban sprawl, high volume of generated waste, and income inequality in South Africa. Their goal is to empower waste pickers through technology and create sustainable solutions such as on-site composting, up-cycling, and AI-based waste sorting centers. They believe that by applying modern yet low-cost technology, they can significantly improve waste management and create environmental, social, and economic opportunities in South Africa. They have developed technology innovations in the form of process improvements, various products from up-cycling and composting, and service offerings to assist municipalities and communities in waste management.
