Abstract:A growing number of waste is a significant environmental problem in society, and the amount of waste is expected to increase dramatically. Proper waste separation is a key factor to be able to recycle waste. However, the University of Twente Campus & Facility Management investigated that waste is not well separated at the University of Twente. To solve this problem, the interactive waste island that can educate waste separation knowledge for the UT community member was developed. The promising result revealed that the prototype successfully improved the waste separation quality by increasing the number of correct waste disposals and influenced future waste separation behavior positively. The developed interactive waste island showed the potential to enhance the waste separation quality at the UT campus by educating the UT community members. This research can contribute to not only raising recycling quality at the UT campus but also solving environmental problems ultimately.
