While curbside collection carts may appear uncomplicated by nature, they have evolved significantly over the last decade. This is in large part due to the rise of automated systems and the rapid expansion of curbside collection programs around Canada and the U.S. It also has to do with the evolving range of materials collected at the curb, including organics. Curbside collection carts (aka rollout carts) have become easier to handle for residential users, more lightweight yet more durable, as well as more visually appealing and better at keeping out vectors. Sophisticated RFID (radio-frequency identification) and tracking technologies incorporated into carts can also now help cities, waste management companies and haulers manage their carts and their customers. All of this has changed the way the collection industry operates and the way carts for the collection of waste, recyclables and organics are designed.
