There are multiple types of materials that tend to end opp in the mixed waste containers. At a shopping mall in Norway we run a pilotproject where we collect a range of waste fractions of value, such as plastic foil, coffee grounds, used textile and oil from restaurants. We created a user friendly self registration app in combination with containers tagged with QR-codes. The system is in use by all the retail stores, and serves a framework to register the sources and predict the volumes for all of the different recyclables that are being collected. Due to the data collection we can implement reward systems for individual businesses, and also understand the sources of different types of waste. This system may be implemented in any building with several tenants and centralized waste handling infrastructure.
More granular recycling in real estate waste management
WasteIQ can be used to easily add infrastructure support for the collection new and valuable materials in real estate.
