Reasons why organic waste containers should be closed.
The main problem associated with the collection of organic waste is the anonymity of citizens. This problem leads to a huge lack of participation in separate collection. There are several reasons why organic waste containers can be closed with electronic locks that identify citizens.
Some of the reasons to deploy these containers are as follows:
1. Encourage citizen participation: The fact of identifying citizens can encourage participation in the separation and recycling of organic waste, citizens who make good use of the container can be rewarded with discounts on taxes or social benefits.
2. Monitor the amount of organic waste generated: The fact of identifying citizens can encourage participation in the separation and recycling of organic waste, citizens who make good use of the container can be rewarded with discounts on taxes or social benefits.
3. Monitor the amount of organic waste generated: These locks allow you to collect data on the amount of organic waste generated in a specific area, which can be useful to adjust the frequency of garbage collection or plan environmental awareness campaigns.
4. Improve efficiency in waste management: Electronic locks allow a more efficient management of organic waste, information can be collected on the filling of the container and schedule the collection according to the capacity of the same, avoiding unnecessary collections and reducing the cost of waste management.
In short, the use of electronic locks that identify citizens in organic waste containers can help control access to the container, encourage citizen participation, monitor the amount of waste generated and improve efficiency in waste management.
In Spain, card-closed containers have been used in several places as a measure to prevent misuse of containers and reduce environmental impact. The results of these experiences have been mixed. In some cities, the amount of missorted or inappropriate waste has been significantly reduced, while in others technical difficulties with containers or problems with access to cards have been detected.
It is clear that the identification of users can help to achieve a high degree of separation at source and reduce the levels of waste generation. It should be noted that it is very important to carry out a detailed analysis of each situation before implementing this type of measure.
