WasteID

FAQ

What is WasteID?

WasteID is a powerful and convenient tool for tracking, monitoring and managing waste. It is used across Australia by a range of government authorities, utilities companies and private waste contractors.

It is powered by QR2id which also powers a number of similar applications used by a range of organisations from government regulators to utilities operators and corporate users.


Do I need a special App?

No. WasteID is a web based service which can be used through most modern web-browsers. For increased efficiency we recommend our users, particularly waste transporters, use the free QR2id App on their smart phone or tablet and, unlike other systems, there is no charge for scanning. This allows them to scan QR2id codes and barcodes at known waste sources and at waste facilities.

The QR2id App is available for Apple iOS and Android devices running current versions of operating systems. A smart phone/tablet with GPS and a minimum 5 megapixel camera is a must for reliable scanning.


How do I create an account so I can log in?

My Account is blocked, what happened?

After a number of failed login attempts your account will be blocked. Please contact your administrator or support to have your account unblocked, or use this link to reset your password

Your password will not be reset until you follow the link in the email. The link in the email will open in your web browser, so if you are using the QR2id App to request a password reset, you will need to reset the password via the browser first. Log-off / close the web browser to avoid any confusion, then login on the QR2id App using the new password you have set.


Can logins be shared by users?

No. Each person who uses WasteID must have their own login. Companies may have, at no additional cost, as many users of WasteID as needed.


Can WasteID be used anywhere?
