As a government waste collection administrator, you know how it goes. You’ve been tasked with building or improving a waste collection program, with two seemingly contradictory objectives: 

  1. First, find ways to improve collection rates and divert as much recyclable waste from landfill as possible.
  2. On the other hand, do it with limited budget and continual staff shortages.  

Unfortunately, budget restrictions and limited resources mean your quotas can easily fall short.

It’s not enough to just coordinate collection events or put a regular pickup program in place. Residents need to be properly informed.  What are the rules? What time does the collection happen? They need guidance to learn how to participate effectively and with little disruption to their busy days.
