In-dumpster technology sends text alerts when unwanted materials enter commercial dumpsters
Users can now get personalized text messages and emails when unwanted material enters a commercial dumpster, so that timely, corrective action can be taken. Content and contamination identification is one of four key data categories Compology's in-dumpster cameras and artificial intelligence automatically capture, in addition to fullness, location, and pickup activity.
Here's how contamination identification notifications help businesses save on waste collection costs and meet their Zero Waste goals:
Reduce waste costs: Tailored data and images improve education effectiveness by alerting and encouraging on-site team members to take immediate action before being fined for having contamination in their dumpsters.
Minimize inefficient or unnecessary pickups: Uncollapsed cardboard boxes are the biggest driver and pain point in creating "artificial fullness," or making a dumpster appear to be full and ready for pickup when it still has plenty of space.
Increase diversion rates: Automatically identify 7+ categories of content and contamination, and use the data to take tailored actions to reduce contamination and produce cleaner recycling streams, improving practices across your organization to divert contaminated material from landfills.
Improve transparency and compliance: Accurate data and insightful metrics help deliver informative sustainability and CSR reports to stakeholders, and import waste and recycling metrics into any sustainability tracking program.
