Recycling creates a lifecycle for precious materials, saving energy and reducing pollution
The metal and E-waste we pickup will be broken down and reused to produce something new
Keep items out of landfills - which can sit for years or even end up polluting local environments
By reusing materials you're keeping precious materials in the ground and reducing energy spent on mining & production
Production of new materials creates a massive amount of pollution. By recycling you help to limit pollution

Although recycling for paper, plastic, glass is widespread, adoption is very low for metal, e-waste, rubber, and textiles.
At modest adoption rates, household recycling could avoid 6.0+ gigatons of carbon over the next 30 years! So where is the environmental benefit coming from?
There are immediate emissions reductions that come from avoiding landfilling and substituting recycled materials in future production. For example, forging recycled aluminum uses 95% less energy than creating from virgin material!
There are also secondary benefits to recycling materials that can be re-forged - avoiding pollution. The production of virgin materials for metal and electronics produces massive amounts of pollution runoff. These runoffs end up in aquifers, farms, cities, and oceans.
On top of that, landfilling E-waste exposes harmful chemicals that need to be properly cared for. For example, E-wastes can contain mercury that with dangerous consequences of exposure from landfilling
At MATTER our mission is to make it easy and painless to properly recycle your waste!
We love the fact that picking up items directly from our customers makes it SUPER EASY for anyone to recycle. Unfortunately, picking up items from people can get expensive!
So, to make the process cost effective we group together pickups in the same area! This means our drivers can spend less time driving and more time collecting your items.
Once we have enough pickup orders in an area, we schedule an optimized pickup route for our driver based on your preferences.
When you place a pickup order with MATTER you'll let us know which times work best for you. When we're ready to come pickup your items we'll shoot you a text for you to confirm a pickup time. Then, just leave your items outside a few hours before and VOILA - we'll pick them up!
If you need help lifting your items or can't leave them outside - no problem! Just gather all your items and we'll do the heavy lifting.
