About us

Scrapo, Inc. is a California, US-based company that is revolutionizing plastics recyclables trading industry by promoting a free and open market through use of technology.

Our founders came up with the idea of Scrapo after actively trading recyclable materials for over a decade. They were frustrated with how difficult it was to find good deals and how much time they wasted on endless phone calls and emails.

The material they wanted to buy or sell was out there. The buyers and sellers were out there. But they were almost impossible to find and doing so cost a lot of time and effort. Scrapo changes this by giving small, medium, and big traders a direct way to connect with each other without having to pay to do so.

Products & Services

There are two main problems that we’ve experienced over our years in the industry:

  1. Discovery: It’s difficult to find prospective buyers/sellers or offers when you want. The cost of searching is really high in terms of both time and money.
  2. Trust & Security: Dealing with unknown parties is always a risk when it comes to the quality of materials for the buyers or payments for the sellers

Our marketplace was designed to help our customers overcome these issues.
