It is a service that makes disposing and managing waste that everyone had difficulty with at least once remarkably easy and convenient. ‘Bbaegi’ is a specialized platform equipped with a variety of services such as disposing of waste without stickers, dropping off heavy and bulky items at a low cost, or getting paid for selling the things which would’ve cost money to dispose of them.”
