Our Vision: A Sustainable Transformation

We dream of a perfect circular economy and make it easier for companies to transition from analog waste management to digital resource management. Through efficient matchmaking, resource conservation, and optimized recycling pathways, we take the first steps towards a sustainable future with Wastics.

Our Mission: Digitization for a Green Future

Wastics is a digital one-stop-shop that simplifies waste management for businesses. In doing so, we contribute to reducing environmental impact, conserving resources, and closing material loops.

Our History: Problem Solving with Modern Technology

High costs, significant time investments, and limited transparency – in short, the state of waste management in Austria is a story of untapped potentials. This is especially true in times of climate change, where waste should have no place.

Since our founding in 2021, the Wastics team has faced the challenges of waste management with courage and the vision of using digital solutions for the benefit of all stakeholders. With success, as our digital ecosystem not only optimizes waste and resource management within companies but also allows waste collectors and processors to offer their services precisely and easily on Wastics.

Many things have happened since then, and even more has been achieved. From receiving grants, successful participation in competitions, to newly formed valuable partnerships. However, our journey has only just begun - and we look forward to sharing it with you!
