The MOSSUP project is an initiative launched by Searious Business in 2020 in Morocco with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. The objective of the project is the development of a deposit return scheme where PET bottles are collected in supermarkets and recycled locally into new bottles. Supermarkets’ customers can return plastic bottles directly at the store locations and retrieve a voucher of 0.20 Moroccan DH that will be added to the balance of their loyalty cards. The bottles collected will then be transported by local waste cooperatives to their facilities, where bottles will be pressed and baled to be then transported to a local recycler.
The MOSSUP compteur de bouteilles app will enable project partners to keep track of the bottles collected daily and to retrieve this data. The app will allow partners to sign in as waste cooperatives members or as supermarket staff. The Waste cooperatives members can insert the number of bottles collected and send a notification to the supermarket staff via the app. The supermarket staff will then receive the notification, check the number of bottles collected and confirm it via the app.
