Ideal for any business where waste is reported or sampled, TraceWaste is an intelligent waste management solution that integrates into your waste collection processes, helping you to effectively report on business waste and identify cost efficiencies.

The TraceWaste solution is programmable to track your waste stream of choice, be it food waste, paper, plastics or any other type of waste stream. The data can be collected from a single location or collated from multiple business sites, to build a highly accurate reporting tool that can help to effectively manage waste across your business. Data is then displayed on a dashboard for you to see at a glance how your business is performing and where efficiencies could be made.

TraceWaste allows organisations to:

  • Reduce waste effectively and keep a detailed and highly accurate record of waste reduction methods
  • Quickly and efficiently capture waste data for local authority KPI monitoring and compliance and for internal reporting
  • Record and store a full audit trail; storing time, date and transaction ID against each weighing transaction.

Detailed waste data can be captured and recorded into different sub categories, including site, department, location, operator, waste category, group and product and reason codes.

TraceWaste comprises of two software products; the Weighlogic database software, designed for use on an office-based PC or server – and also the TraceWaste application, optimised for touchscreen use. The touchscreen terminal will be connected to one of a range of weighing scales, depending on customer need.
