Lower Contamination and Wishcycling

We all want people to recycle right, but when they don’t know if something is recyclable – or where to properly dispose of it – they wishcycle.

Using the Waste Wizard, people search your website or the mobile app to see if an item is recyclable – and instantly get proper instructions on which bin to use or where it can be dropped off.

The tool is built on search technology that’s powerful – yet simple, intuitive and easy for anyone to use.

Say goodbye to time-consuming and costly printed materials and inbound calls.

Save Time and Resources

The Waste Wizard never sleeps, so anyone with a recycling question will find the correct answer at any time – right from their smartphone, tablet or laptop.

It lowers operational costs for staffing and call centers needed to support people’s questions. It also frees up your time and resources to focus on operational needs.

Still tracking materials using slow and outdated methods like spreadsheets and folders?

The Waste Wizard is pre-loaded with thousands of materials and supporting images to help save you time and costs and get up and running faster.

Data and Analytics

What materials and instructions are people having a challenge with? What are they getting wrong?

Waste Wizard’s advanced analytics help you measure and track your programs with focus and precision. Access the most commonly searched materials, and build awareness campaigns to target problem areas.

Every time people search, you will have more data to gain insights and make decisions on.

Our powerful dashboard lets you quickly update content, add materials and monitor usage.

Engage, Educate and Delight

As the Recycling Educator, your role is to help keep your audience informed and educated.

Stay connected to people in real time, and help them understand new and important changes within your programs.

Building a trusted, valuable connection with people is an effective way to change recycling behavior.

Change Recycling Behavior

The future of waste and recycling communications is digital. Maximize your messaging and campaigns to target people where – and how – they search.

Today’s recyclers are already using digital, and tomorrow’s recyclers will only respond to digital communications (i.e. smartphones, voice search).

When we communicate the right message effectively, and people change behavior in a positive way, we all win.
