Using Technology to Enable Passive Compliance to Improve Duty of Care: WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2018 Retrospective


Related event

Waste crime is costing the country hundreds of millions of pounds, yet research shows that many householders and businesses are unclear that they have a Duty of Care to their waste or how to meet it. Criminals take advantage of this lack of understanding by confusing and misleading waste producers. But what if rather than having to spend time and effort on educating waste producers and then relying on them making the right choice, we could make doing the right thing the easiest option?

At WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2018, Dsposal’s Co-Founders, Sophie Walker and Tom Passmore, explored the idea of passive compliance and explained how technology can be deployed to tackle waste crime by cutting out the illegal operators, simplifying Duty of Care and nudging better behaviour. They also looked at how these initial steps can take us down a road to smart waste tracking and how we can use that data to drive the transition to a Circular Economy.
