Web app incentivising and educating people about recycling with a competitive edge.
We wanted to take the large amounts of data about recycling in Victoria and use that to encourage further recycling. The app loads data for your local council and helps you make informed decisions about what to recycle. it also uses the data to show how your local council is performing, and the environmental impact that recycling can have in real terms. To encourage recycling, the app will be gamified, allowing users in each council to play off against other councils in a race to be the best recycling council in Victoria. We've highlighted the great work that the City of Kingston have been doing in recycling.
Helping the community realise we’re in their corner!
Local Government has lots of data, so how can we utilise the data we have, and the open data out there to tell the story of what we do, how we do it so well, and how this benefits the community, in ways that constituents will receive and understand?
