Educating the community about waste management and resource recovery, and encouraging more mindful behaviour through AI based reward or penalty systems. The goal is a long term reduction in waste to landfill through better community engagement from government provided waste collection services.
Using address related GIS data and collection schedules, create an app that alerts users to the time and type of collection, while providing volume over time details of their waste production and resource recovery efforts to date, aggregated with local, regional and national level sources to paint a picture of everyone's combined efforts.
Use AI to "score" and/or categorise contamination in recycling bins, then use A/B testing of reward vs penalty based systems to encourage behaviour changes and reduce waste to landfill over time.
Additional features allow a barcode scanner in the app to determine if a product package is recyclable or not
People are increasingly aware of the problems with plastics and want to ‘do their bit’ but how do we increase engagement in Plastic Free July? Using data and IT-based solutions, how can we increase both geographical update and reach a wider demographic (particularly more men)?

Many residents are unaware of what happens to their waste once it enters a bin or simply don't care.
How might we use data to empower and educate our community about their waste?
