Visual Segregation Rate (KPI-3)

Measures the degree of segregation of the dry waste in percentage, delivered from the individual circuit, based on random sampling and visual assessment of at least 10 bags per vehicle

  • Expected average – 95%.
  • Increases and decreases as described in KPI-1 & 2.

Actions to be taken

  • All actions described under KPI-1 & 2 to be repeated.
  • If problem persists consider recommending punitive measures to authorities concerned.
  1. Bulk deliveries and special streams can to an extent influence segregation rates in both ways.
  2. Special Circumstances such as fairs and festivals, and a tourist influx may again influence the KPI in a negative manner.
