A Lancashire tech start-up which is looking to innovate the recycling world is to exhibit their ideas at a summit in Canada.

Scrap Local, founded in Haslingden during the Covid pandemic, has developed some exciting software to disruptively innovative operations within the recycling industry.

The company's vision is to become the leading digital platform for all things scrap and introduce some cutting-edge tech to the industry.

Mo Arshad from Scrap Local said: "We have been invited to exhibit at the Collision Web Summit in Toronto, Canada  from June 20-23, as one of the event's green tech IMPACT companies alongside other businesses taking strides toward the reduction of carbon emissions and net-zero targets.

Lancashire Telegraph:

"As a self-funded business, we have pushed the boundaries and grown our business, recruiting additional staff and receiving mentoring support from Boost Lancashire which has seen us achieve a tenfold growth in the space of a year.

"In 2020 alone we connected more than one million homes and businesses to trusted scrap yards nationwide on our network, not bad for a Covid start-up and relative newbie in a competitive space, even if we do say so ourselves."

Scap Local has also won and been finalists for several awards, which includes the 2021 Rossendale Service Business Award and a highly commended in the Creative Business Awards.

This was alongside being nationally recognised as finalists for the Rising Star Award with Metals Recycling World, part of the National Recycling Awards.
