A DIY Waste Booking Module built to help you seamlessly manage the new legislation.

We've worked with stakeholders from over 70 HWRCs to build a new DIY Waste Booking Module that is designed to help authorities: 

  • Seamlessly manage the legislation change 
  • Reduce service misuse 
  • Recoup losses through cost reduction & revenue generation
  • Improve recycling rates
  • Deliver a better on-site experience with a purpose-built check-in app
  • Reduce fly-tipping
  • Streamline comms between site & admin staff
  • Improve reporting on waste streams
  • Better inform residents with (automated) two-way comms channels

Here's how:  

1: By stopping service misuse.

This module includes a suite of automated rules that can:

  • Limit residents to two 50L rubble sacks per week, one bulky item, or your chosen equivalent
  • Cap usage at four visits per month
  • Reduce out-of-borough tipping with address lookup

 2: By improving comms & reducing emissions. 

With this additional functionality, you can generate automated comms & web journey prompts informing users they have hit disposal limits to stop wasted journeys & reduce carbon emission outputs. 

3: By improving reporting.

You'll get detailed reports on the frequency, amount & type of DIY waste disposed of per household. See top users by waste stream, revenues, & much more.

4: By providing dynamic visit durations.

With this module, duration options will update dynamically based on the type/volume of waste a user selects. This is to encourage users to visit less frequently but with more waste.


This module is included (as standard) in our GovBook Gold | HWRC Booking Service.
