Save Time and Lower Costs

The Waste Sorting Game saves you time and resources by remotely teaching your audience how to properly recycle.

Because it’s digital and accessible with most common devices, it lowers operational costs, such as having staff attend events in-person or the need for physical materials.

Use the product as a standalone teaching tool, or to amplify your in-person education and outreach strategy.

Lower Contamination and Wishcycling

When people don’t know which bin an item is supposed to go in, they wishcycle – and this contaminates your streams.

By educating people on “what goes where” for the top incorrectly placed materials, you will lower contamination and help people learn quickly and in a fun way.

Lower Operational Costs

Attending events in person can be a drain on time and resources. Our Waste Sorting Game reaches the widest possible audience and is easy to implement and even easier to promote.

Easily check education effectiveness. Aggregated metrics show where people struggle the most with recycling, providing a virtual waste audit.

Teach People Proactively

When people play the Waste Sorting Game and they select the wrong bin for an item, they realize they may be making assumptions about recycling.

Test people’s recycling knowledge and teach them the right way to recycle some commonly misunderstood items in the process.

Data and Analytics

What materials and instructions are people having a challenge with? As more people play the game, you get more data which helps you learn what people are getting wrong.

As a Recycling Educator, part of your role is to engage and educate people. Build targeted campaigns using that knowledge to re-educate people and teach them how to properly recycle.

Stay Modern

Stay modern by offering your audience a polished digital game experience.

People use digital platforms and communications to learn, so why not meet them halfway? Let’s do our part by making it simple and easy for them to learn proper recycling.

How The Waste Sorting Game Helps

Avoid Costly Assumptions

Contamination is the result of people incorrectly assuming which bin an item should be placed in.

With the Waste Sorting Game, you can easily test what people think they are doing right but are commonly getting wrong.

Use data to build targeted campaigns and “course correct” people’s recycling behavior.
