Quora does this because they have a "real name" policy. Meaning, they only want contributions from users' actual identities, vs anonymous avatars. They don't tell you this when you're casually viewing the site like this, but I think they are essentially trying to block access to the site in order to ensure that the only people with full access to the site ...

I would not recommend it - Be it partial content or a sign-up wall Let me back this statement from personal experience. I launched a Quora like community for science geeks but kept it behind a "Sign-up wall" initially. It got featured on the front page of Hacker News and did receive 5000+ sign ups within 10 hours or so. Seems awesome, right? Well, my ...

Use reputation (It worked for stackoverfow). Create some kind of frecuent client card or database. You can use the plate from the vehicle for example. Frecuent and honest clients could benefit from discounts and less control. And they are already familiar with the rules. They only need to be scanned randomly but if they are discovered cheating they might ...

One option which might help is to provide additional information, based on the answers given. For instance, at my local recycling facility, I often end up missing the drop off point for one type of waste while looking for another and have to do a second circuit of the facility to get to the correct place for that part of the load. If I were able to say what ...

Great question with some great answers. A few more options to explore: Incentivise the paid options with a bonus scheme. Advise the client to form a relevant partnership with a local business. Here in the UK there are many such partnerships. Buy anything from WHSmith and you get a voucher for a cheap meal at nearby McDonalds on your receipt. Buy anything ...

Whenever there's a choice to be made that can affect financial consequences, people can and will attempt to game it. What my local public waste disposal facility does, is make everything that requires payment a separate fenced section of the park, and everything that's free is in another part of the park. If you have paid materials to dispose of, you need ...

This is not an UX issue. Your UX cannot make up for the fail of the facility's/municipality's approach towards payment. The problem with honesty is that it does work both ways. If I deliver multiple categories on a Saturday, each of them pure (a heavy bucket of dirt in the trunk, and a matching load of garden waste on the trailer), I would neither want to ...

Just as a thought, if you knew how many times somebody had come to the facility, you could display something like: You have deposited [garden|mixed|..] type waste [n] times in the past [m] months It makes it clearer to the person doing the dumping that you are aware of how often they are coming. If they already feel a little guilty about doing whatever ...

Could the system be turned 180 so they are assumed to be carrying "mixed" unless shown otherwise, and pay at the exit? So, you come in, you take stuff to the people who would be charging you to sort, they look and see whether sorting is needed, and either start sorting, or give you a voucher to use instead of payment at the exit and wave you on.

It is well known that, in many cultures (especially America), a symbol of authority anywhere near the UI will inspire honesty. An official looking seal on the UI would likely lead to more honest users.

Do all the options need to appear on the one screen? If you had one screen with the options of "Mixed Waste" and "Other/Not mixed" (possibly utilising images like tohster suggested); then you could make those two buttons bigger and easier to hit and make most people take the lazy way out and select mixed all the time.
