Their website domain was created on 2-9-2015. Recyclix claims they have been operating in the waste recycling market for many years and for this period they have succeeded in establishing trust-based and mutually beneficial relationships with hundreds of clients.  They have not provided any financial information prior to 2015.  I do not believe their claims.

No prospectus is provided by Recyclix for this investment. The proof that is provided that this is a legitimate business is tours of recycling plants.

When you create an account with Recyclix you gain access to the back-office where you can purchase waste and units.  This is where you can invest and monitor your investments.

If you wish to buy more than your initial quota, you will have to buy usufructuary rights for the equipment used to process these wastes.

Units you can purchase:

  • Forklift

The recycling process according to them takes weeks. This is clearly not a real time indicator of how long it actually takes to recycle plastic.

If you want to sell the material after the first or the second cycle, you will have a negative account balance since the revenue share won’t be sufficient for creating a positive difference in price. Understand that you will not be able to maximize your profit rate if you only buy a lot of waste without any equipment.

CarbonLITE in California processes 300,000 lbs of plastic per day.

Most contracts allow a municipality to drop off a truckload of recyclables, namely cardboard, paper, aluminum, rigid plastics and glass, at the recycling company at no cost. In addition, it is expected that the municipality will also share in revenue earned from the sale of the recyclables after the recycling company has covered its processing costs. – Source Greenbiz.com

The National Commission for Companies and the Stock Exchange (CONSOB) in Italy asked Recyclix to provide evidence they were getting their profit from selling recycled plastic and Recyclix refused to do so. Now CONSOB has blocked Recyclix from offering their investment in Italy:

CONSOB (the National Commission for Companies and the Stock Exchange) has adopted (under the terms of Art. 99, paragraph 1, lett. d), of the CLF) a measure prohibiting the offering to the public resident in Italy made by the company Recyclix SP. Z.O.O., regarding investments of a financial nature promoted also through the website www.recyclix.com (Resolution no. 19799 of 6 December 2016). This is because the offering was made in breach of artt. 94 et seq. of Italian Legislative Decree no. 58/1998, concerning the obligation, for anyone intending to make a public offering, to send in advance to CONSOB a prospectus destined for publication. The offering had already been suspended by CONSOB for 90 days as a precautionary measure with Resolution no. 19723 of this past 14 September. The Commission reminds you that, under the terms of Art. 101, paragraph 2, of the said decree the distribution of all advertisements regarding public offerings of financial products other than community financial instruments is prohibited before a prospectus has been published.

All advertisements related to the offering must consequently be considered forbidden. – Source Consob.it

It is my opinion, Recyclix is running a Ponzi scheme. They are using waste and recycling plants that you can tour as a cover for their scam. They are using newer investor money to pay old investors.  They use an arbitrary 5 week recycle time frame and the ability to cycle your investment for more profits to keep money in the Ponzi as long as possible.

Recyclix clearly merges user funds for their business activities:

Recyclix Sp.z o.o may merge these funds with the funds of other Users and its proprietary funds. These merged funds may be used for our mutual corporate aims or other business activities. However, Recyclix Sp.z o.o. shall in any case pay or return you the funds according to this Payment Policy and the Terms of Use. – Source Recyclix.com

Here is how this scam has been summed up:

So, in a nutshell, it has the usual range of pretend user-defined ‘options’ to give them the sense that they have control, plus the all-important ‘profit-compounding’ selector which keeps your money in the scammers pockets and, as a bonus for themselves, they even have an additional layer of security, the scammers I mean, not the users, in terms of knowing how long they’ve likely got your money for through selecting a commitment to a number of goes on the gravy-train ‘cycles’ which, clearly, is going to be incredible useful for the Ponzi calculator to be able to keep the scammers up to speed on making sure that incoming deposits are always greater than any outgoing withdrawals. – Source Bitcointalk.org

Also, you can earn by attracting new partners for Recyclix and receiving 12% every time they deposit through card, bank account, or BTC.

If you want to recycle large amounts of waste with the value from 1000 to 27,000 EUR, or 5000 to 135,000 kilos of waste, you will be provided new opportunities to generate even more profits by purchasing shares in recycling equipment.

RECYCLING EQUIPMENT

You can purchase 5 different equipment units at our factory.

FORKLIFT

SHREDDER

Used for speeding up the grinding process of waste for its further recycling. Increases the amount of waste you can purchase and your revenue share from by 5% to 9% to 33%.

The maximum purchase amount of shredder shares is 30,000 EUR.

WASHING LINE

IMPORTANT TIPS

If you want to sell the material after the first or the second cycle, you will have a negative account balance since the revenue share won’t be sufficient for creating a positive difference in price.

For example, you buy waste for 100 EUR and then sell granules after the completion of the full cycle for 300 EUR. Your profits for the first cycle will be 6 EUR.

Your profits will depend on your revenue share and amount to at least 25% according to the rules. This way, you will receive 25% from 300 EUR or 75 EUR. Overall, you will earn 6 EUR and 75 EUR or 81 EUR after the full recycling cycle.

We recommend you to take the production process information displayed on our website seriously and purchase shares of the necessary equipment sensibly so that you can achieve the ideal ratio of raw material and equipment costs.

Understand that you will not be able to maximize your profit rate if you only buy a lot of waste without any equipment.

In order to transfer your earnings to your account balance after the completion of the full cycle, you must click on RECYCLE button and not on SELL button.

The profit amount upon selling of regrind material or granules is calculated this way through multiplying the material quantity by the revenue share. The revenue share depends on the amount of funds you have spent on equipment and varies from 25% to 50%. The material is sold at the market price on the selling day.
