HID Global announced a partnership with the AMCS Group, a supplier of software solutions to the waste and recycling industry, to help its customers optimize their waste management processes.
The company’s range of RFID technology products will offer AMCS efficient methods for real-time tracking, providing better read range, higher performance, and a wider variety of tag options.
HID Global’s Standard Bin Tag 125 kHz Unique, the Plug Tag 125 kHz Unique for “specials”, a custom-designed push-in bin tag for steel containers, and OEM reader modules are being deployed as part of AMCS’ solution that it offers its municipality and waste collection business customers.
Tags embedded into the wheelie bins enable readers on garbage trucks to identify the container and the system records the weight of waste. The AMCS system logs the tag’s location and ties it to GPS coordinates. A number of municipal AMCS customers also utilize the RFID technology for recording exceptions such as “missed bin”, “access blocked” and “bin contaminated”.
This vital information can help better guide decisions on route efficiency and fleet optimization, reducing overall costs.
