Why digitise your waste and recycling communication programmes?


Waste collection and recycling organisations rely on traditional methods to provide waste sorting education and manage waste collection calendars to instantly communicate changes or delays in the collection schedule.
As these organisations try to implement sustainable waste management practices and decrease the amount of waste diverted to landfills, they struggle to keep up with the increased contamination. They are also challenged with higher diversion rates and a lack of innovative methods to educate residents on proper recycling habits, as the traditional methods only result in increased call volumes.
As an increasingly environmentally conscious people, we grew tired of keeping up with waste and collection changes; we were confused about how to dispose of commonly misplaced items and the lack of real-time updates to our local waste program. This is why we built ReCollect, a suite of digital outreach communication tools specifically built for the waste industry.
