FleetMind Solutions has developed a new Web-based solution for Waste and Recycling companies that automates garbage collection using RFID technology.
Similar to the system in place in Australia, FleetMind’s solution requires each garbage bin to be outfitted with an RFID tag that corresponds to the customer’s address. Waste workers can quickly verify cart details by scanning the tags with hand held readers, automatically recording who has received service and when.
Additionally, waste trucks are outfitted with a FleetLink on-board system that reads and recognizes the tagged garbage cans as they are being collected, thereby automating the service verification process.
FleetMind’s system also automates the maintenance process. If a receptacle is in need of repair or replacement, an employee scans the tag and data is automatically sent to dispatch where a maintenance order is logged.
