Advanced Manufacturing Control Systems (AMCS), a provider of waste management tracking solutions, is deploying its RFID technology in the U.S. market for the first time.
AMCS’ RFID technology will be used to to enhance its efforts to accelerate recycling rates across the U.S. In addition to the partnership, AMCS also revealed plans to open a subsidiary in the U.S.
AMCS technology will be leveraged by municipalities and private waste collectors to advance a program that is credited with more than doubling community recycling rates. An RFID chip in each recycling bin is weighed and communicates with back-office information management systems, allowing the company to track the recycling activity of individual residents. The technology can also be used to charge residents and commercial customers for the exact amount of waste that they send for landfill.
