Abstract

This project explored the challenges and opportunities associated with prospective implementations of big data analytics in Denmark’s waste industry. We found that while some waste management companies collect detailed data, they do not use or share their data adequately. We identified that, to begin implementing big data into Denmark’s waste industry, companies must: expand data collection on internal operations and waste per household; develop better data management systems; and review technical, ethical, and legal practices surrounding personal data on waste.
