Capita Environment Consultancy resolved to design an automated tool that could display large quantities of waste output data visually, to enable trend analysis and detection of anomalies.

Challenge

Waste management strategies are often hindered by the lack of consistent waste output data. Capita already required all waste service partners to upload monthly waste data to the online compliance tool, Meridian, however the raw data is plentiful. Therefore, trends and anomalies are not easily spotted, which makes it difficult to establish waste reduction strategies.

Solution

Capita Environment Consultancy developed an automated reporting tool, which takes large quantities of waste data and turns it into useful reports with infographics. The reporting output enables monitoring of trends over time in:

  • Overall waste generation,
  • Specific types of waste production,
  • The distribution of waste consumption and
  • Waste treatment methods.

In addition, Capita’s environmental consultants provide bespoke commentary on the quality of data, arising data trends and suggestions for improvement.

Results

Key success is visual representation of data to increase understanding and engagement. This solution bridges the gap between data collection and online/real time data presentation when budgets do not allow investment in the latter. It is flexible to support Fund level down to property or tenant level reporting where the data exists. It requires data to be provided in a specified and agreed format, however, the waste industry is increasingly able to provide this.

We have formed a successful partnership with Capita identifying innovative ways of reducing consumption, we now need to continue this good work with further improvements.
