The solution we developed hopes to reduce the amount of waste disposed incorrectly in Santo Niño Sur and Santo Niño Norte in Iloilo City, Philippines. By providing residents a convenient waste collection system at a minimal subscription cost, residents will have access to an on-demand waste collection service that can be requested through SMS or by calling. We also hope to provide waste collection to local commercial businesses and use the revenue earned by servicing businesses to subsidize the cost for residents. Waste collected will be transported to temporary drop zones that can be then transferred to municipal waste disposal sites. This service will create employment opportunities for locals and improve the quality of lives for all residents.
