Honk! is a mobile application that proves traditional karung guni (rag-and-bone) trade and modern technology can converge. Named after the iconic handheld honk used by traders to alert residents of their presence, the app connects households directly with traders through their smartphones to deal in the sale and collection of second-hand goods or recyclable waste.
