In a real estate project we currently combine access controlled compactors for mixed waste with a self registry in open containers for recyclables. We built an app for the registration process, and use QR codes on standard bins and containers. Experiences so far indicates that this can be a very cost-efficient way of upgrading waste infrastructure. We are joined by researchers from NHH - Norwegian School of Economics in this project, and we will get back to the results.
Using QR codes to upgrade regular bins/containers
We currently run a pilot project where we use QR codes to make a self registry system for recycled materials. Promising results!
