How does the Waste Management System work?
By rewarding citizens for recycling, waste collection becomes a community effort. The tokens received can be used for personal use to be exchanged for governmental services. But tokens can also be pooled together so communities can save for new neighborhood services. This, for instance, happened in the city of Enschede, where citizens performed voluntary work in exchange for a community center.
On this page, the mechanism behind the Waste Management System is further explained. Please note that these are merely examples and that the platform can also be used for more general urban governance purposes.
