With the purpose of improving citizen participation in food waste sorting, we decided to create an app that allows you to receive points, which can then be converted into rewards, every time you throw away your trash just by passing an RFID card near the sensor placed in the container.
"I think the use of rewards to convince people to sort their food waste is a good idea"
"I think controlling access is a good idea since it prevents people from throwing anything into the container"
"I like the fact that I can see my progress o the app, it makes sorting the waste more fun"
