Abstract:Landfills and the consumption pattern that has developed with modern age are becoming an increasing problem. These problems contribute to the greenhouse gasses that cause global warming. To diminish these landfills, waste separation is crucial. Currently at the University of Twente 31.6\% of the PD, 18.5\% of the organic, and 17.9\% of the cardboard and paper waste is thrown away in the residual waste. The lack of motivation inhibits the individual's waste separation behavior. Therefore, an interactive waste island is developed that motivates and educates the users to separate their waste. The results revealed that for the short term motivation this installation is a success. Moreover, it educated waste separation knowledge using human intelligence. It showed potential to enhance the motivation of separation behavior. This research can be used to influence and motivate the UT community to improve on its waste separation, and help University of Twente achieve their waste plan.
