Bridging the gap between sustainability and accessibility.

WasteFinder logo

WasteFinder is a series of tactile signage indicators that are placed on the ground surrounding a waste container. It enables individuals of all abilities to independently and effectively locate waste containers and to dispose of their waste in the appropriate stream.

When you implement WasteFinder in your spaces, you will:

Improve Accessibility

WasteFinder enables community members with vision loss and other disabilities to navigate spaces independently and dispose of their waste.

Foster Social Inclusion

Helping your users participate equally in waste management helps everyone feel included.

Increase Waste Diversion

Making waste disposal more accessible increases the rate of landfill diversion.

Save Money

On average, it costs $30 per ton to recycle waste, $50 to send it to the landfill. Save money while saving the planet!

Increase Customer Satisfaction

With everyone feeling included (and with more waste finding its way to your waste containers), your users will be happier!

Improve Hygiene and Cleanliness

Reduced contact with your waste containers decreases contamination and increases hygiene.

I'm not a customer of STIL Solutions, but I am a faculty member at Wilfrid Laurier University and had the privilege of observing as this student-led social enterprise emerged. I also know CEO Hillary Scanlon personally, as she was a student in our program. In that sense, my review here is more like a personal reference. If Hillary runs this company anything like the way she conducted her studies, you can expect professional customer service with the utmost attention to detail. Having seen WasteFinder tactile signage indicators at work on the Laurier campus, I can also attest to how effectively they blend in to the environment while guiding students with visual disabilities to enable their participation in our campus-wide waste-reduction efforts. This is an amazing social innovation!

We here at the Centre for Social Innovation ordered some of STIL's Accessible Social Distancing indicators, and we are very happy with them. They arrived on time, are made of high quality, and have helped us work towards a more accessible space. Highly recommend these and their recycling focused indicators as well.
