The technological capability behind the vehicles that collect and haul waste and recyclables is advancing very rapidly. One of the major themes at this year's Waste Expo, held May 8-11 in New Orleans, was the trend towards "smart" technology and improving use of data. The latest vehicle telematics technologies mean that efficiencies, maintenance and safety can all be maximized to a level never before seen for fleet owners and their operators. Beyond vehicle monitoring and management, we are now at the point where artificial intelligence technology means that the prospect of the driverless refuse/recyclable collection truck, on roads in Europe and North America, is a very likely reality.

Install Air-Weigh scales on your equipment today and start realizing the benefits of accurate weights right at the loading dock.
Transportation costs continue to rise - higher fuel costs, limited drive hours, and employee turnover reduce profitability. In order to offset these costs companies seek ways to save money. With Air-Weigh suspension scales, drivers can get loaded faster and more efficiently without needing to check-weigh at an in-ground scale. As a result, companies realize more profit per trip without jeopardizing safety or excessive wear on equipment.
Announced to the industry at Waste Expo, May 9-11 in New Orleans, Air-Weigh is taking their proven on-board bin scale to the cloud with their updated BinMaxx XL. Scheduled for release in August of this year, BinMaxx XL powered by the cloud is a cost-effective, hassle-free solution for the refuse industry to better manage productivity and profitability. This front-end loader arm scale is the next generation BinMaxx XL that now uses cloud based storage for all recorded lift data. The scale captures every lift, and downloads data automatically to an office PC through Bluetooth. Upgrading to cloud based data storage now allows automated collection of data that can be easily accessed from anywhere at any time.
When state transportation enforcement authorities started handing out overweight fines to haulers from the city-owned fleet of recycling trucks in Durham, North Carolina, several years ago, it didn’t take long for managers to change their ways.
Air-Weigh now offers a series of scales designed for refuse vehicles built with air or walking beam drive suspensions. Air-Weigh digital on-board scales feature a convenient in-dash display that shows GVW, net payload, steer axle and drive axle weights. The new scales incorporate Air-Weigh’s deflection sensor technology, which allows the accurate weight measurement on steer and drive axles with mechanical suspensions. Refuse vehicle scales from Air-Weigh provide critical axle and GVW weight information.
