MIWA - BELGIUM: Two waste collection systems and a unique integrated technology of user ID || 9.50 - 10.30

Sven Peeters – MIWA Managing Director

Aiming to reduce residual waste production, MIWA initially focused its efforts on increasing the price of the garbage bags and on awareness-raising campaigns. However, the efforts did not produce the expected results. With the introduction of the new door to door container with user ID and system whereby households pay per kilogram of residual waste they dispose of, a large part of the responsibility was placed on the residents themselves and thus obtained better results. The collection system is combined with locking access containers in those areas where it is not viable a door to door collection system.

In the Stockholm Royal Seaport city district uses a unique waste data collection system offered by RFID-equipped waste chutes to collect household-level waste data in a multi-residential context and involve residents in interventions targeted at increasing recycling and reducing overall amounts of waste. User id waste data is used to give social norm-based feedback to residents and thereby encourage them to improve their waste-behaviors. Besides making this feedback available through a smartphone app, they are also working with additional physical interventions to improve performance.
