Dsposal is a clean-tech start-up building easy-to-use tech to connect waste producers to licensed waste services and simplify compliance. We make the relevant data accessible and convenient to drive change and create value. Based in Manchester, Dsposal is working towards a world where all waste is treated as a resource.
Founded by Tom Passmore and Sophie Walker in 2016 with the online platform launching in March 2018, Dsposal has burst onto the resources, recycling and waste industry and is already making waves.
- What we build – We build easy-to-use tech to connect UK waste producers to licensed waste services and simplify compliance. We believe in making the relevant data accessible and convenient to use, driving behaviour change and creating value by maximising the utility of waste.
- What we value – There is no such thing as throwing waste “away”. It goes somewhere; There is a global waste crisis and this problem isn’t going “away” by itself. We’re aware of the problem, it’s on our watch, we need to take responsibility to solve it; Earth’s materials are finite, we need to understand that; Time is a limited resource, don’t waste it; Money is a limited resource, make it work hard; Our customers, suppliers and colleagues are precious, value them; The business we build and the culture we develop must create a nourishing environment that encourages personal, professional and economic growth (but not at the expense of the environment); A quality compost helps to retain goodness and feeds into a virtuous nutrient cycle. By cultivating a great compost we enable not just ourselves to flourish, but also others in our ecosystem – our colleagues, customers, suppliers and networks; The act of composting takes ‘waste’ and turns it into something useful and valuable – always look for ways to add value, be resourceful and see the potential in ‘waste’.
- Vision – A world where all waste is treated as a resource.
- Mission Statement – Maximising the utility of waste via easy to use ubiquitous tech, making the relevant data accessible and useful to all waste producers everywhere to drive behaviour change and create value.
