One way for the INCIEN to obtain the best possible information on waste composition is through waste analysis. We do this by physically collecting waste from citizens, placing it all together onto one place and sorting it into specified materials. We’re literally digging into the garbage to find out as much as possible. The reason why we want to do this in this way is because it is the only reliable way to get information about how much materials in residual waste still can be recycled.
Our method of doing the residual waste analysis was later adopted by the MoE and introduced as an official method for other organizations.
