AcheSeuEcoponto is a web system to assist the Brazilian population in allocating its solid residues appropriately. It was developed using geo and web technologies. The system offers functionalities to citizens (e.g., querying the nearest drop-off centre by waste type, map visualization, and directions) and managers (e.g., reports of underserved areas of disposal centres and users' profile). Besides a discussion on how the system assists citizens and managers, the authors provide a characterization of users' profile and show how the use of web technologies helped in the dissemination of information. Both analyses can help managers giving essential guidelines on how to motivate population engagement.

Acheseuecoponto For Citizens And Managers

AcheSeuEcoponto was designed to assist two types of users: citizens (legal entities like commerce shop and individuals) and managers (town, state and federal managers, environmental researchers, or any person with the capacity to make decisions to deal with SWM). For such, it has an architecture with four modules, providing an interface for citizens and another for managers (Figure 1). More details can be found in (Melaré, González, & Faceli, 2016).
