The four UK governments and environment agencies are working together to develop an electronic waste tracking service that will capture information on all movements of waste in the UK.
The project is progressing well and in October 2019 two companies, Anthesis and Topolytics, received GovTech funding of up to £500,000 each to develop a prototype waste tracking service over a 12 month period. You can read the latest information about the project here.
As the project moves into this next phase the project partners are keen for businesses to help shape waste tracking to ensure that it meets their needs by joining a user panel which will provide the opportunity to take part in user research and test software as it is developed. The majority of user panel activity will take place online, via email or in the workplace and signing up does not commit businesses to anything.
You can sign up to join the waste tracking user panel here.
You can also sign up for a forthcoming newsletter here or via the user panel link.
