Abstract

Effective waste management is crucial for a metropolitan like Hong Kong and the latest technology such as RFED and data mining technique can help provide a sustainable waste management by analyzing the waste disposal habit. To have an integrated information system, the purpose of this paper is to adopt NFC and cloud computing technology to develop a web-based system and mobile app for supporting waste management. A prototype system with ubiquitous technology is being designed and a pilot test of the RFID-based waste management system was launched in Homantin Student Hall of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the results showed that this RFID-based waste management system improved the recycling rate. The significance of the paper is to provide a novel approach by incorporating RFED and mobile app technology for waste management and it can arouse the public awareness about the importance of waste sorting for recycling and waste minimization.
