This project, led by North Tyneside Council, will conduct an investigation into the use of machine learning to assess the variables of bulk waste collection. The objective is to develop a streamlined digital process that ensures the right service is in place to collect various types of large waste, reducing failure demand and the time taken for users to make a request.
If successful, this will help overcome barriers posed by set collection days and reduce the incidence of fly tipping.
A large section of the discovery will focus input from end users to explore 3 objectives:
- is there user interest?
- what technologies are the most suitable?
- does the data agree the project is viable?
