The future of waste tracking
Currently, the system is highly fragmented and there is little cohesion among waste companies. Many businesses use paper-based record keeping, which can be laborious and time-consuming.

It will be much more difficult for companies to commit waste crime, including flytipping, illegal waste exports, deliberate misclassification of waste and the operation of illegal waste sites.
