A global need for a
better waste management

For more than 3 years Serious Games Interactive have developed 4 games for the EU projekt Waste4Think In collaboration with 19 partners across Europe. The purpose of the project has been to initiate, implement and test out different game pilots in Europe to face the increasing challenges of waste management around the world.

With the game Ways2Sort we designed a solution that will raise the awareness of the circular economy and its benefits for communities and its inhabitants, as well as give citizens the right set of tools to handle waste management by reducing the quantity of waste produced.

On the way to becoming a Local Waste Management Experts

Test your waste sorting knowledge and your ability to learn and remember which waste items belong where. Work on your high score by being faster and more accurate.

Ways2Sort aims to educate children on the importance of waste sorting and how to sort waste correctly. The game incorporates factual waste sorting data and methods from different municipalities, which makes it highly customisable and relevant for each individual municipality.

In the game, different waste items are presented to the player, who has to figure out which waste bin to put the items into. The player is introduced to different sorting types, e.g. residual waste, glass, biowaste etc., and different environments, e.g. kitchen, garden and kid’s room.

The game features includes:

  • 200 different waste items
  • 6 environments/chapters
  • Bonus levels at the end of each chapter with a different game mechanic to shake things up and test the player in new ways
  • Encyclopedia with an overview of all the sorting types and which waste items belong where
  • Web editor which allows the municipalities who are part of the project to manage the sorting data used in the game
  • Currently available in English, Spanish, Basque, Greek, Italian and Portuguese
