Electronic Waste Recording

Posted by on Nov 25, 2016 in home_feature | 0 comments

Currently we are managing 45% of our waste collections electronically and look to move this to 100% by April 2017.

Having developed our own in-house bespoke system we can now track individual waste collections electronically. Using technology similar to that used by a parcel delivery service and adapting this to ‘waste collections’ allows us to monitor real-time waste movements.

Electronic tags are placed at the producers site which are pre-loaded with the full postal address, SIC codes, EWC, and hauliers WCL. Once the load has been transported to one of our EA approved outlets the second tag is scanned which provides details of the Deployment Reference Numbers and produces a waste transfer note.

In the month of October alone we tracked 7,200 waste collections electronically.
