A recycling company says landlords should do more to encouraging HMO tenants to boost recycling.
The firm - First Mile - suggests landlords insist individuals in multi-tenanted properties use QR-coded recycling sacks which are personalised to each user and can then be traced back in the event of problems.
The company claims this technology has revolutionised recycling “enabling landlords and other business owners to access real-time data about the recycling’s end location, ensuring complete transparency and accountability.”
As each code is specific to a business or tenant, the technology also means that any contamination issues - such as food waste being put in a dry mixed recycling sack - can be identified.
The company claims its own QR code system has already been used on 40m recycling sacks across the UK.
