The US city of Irving in Texas is rolling out a smart waste and recycling pilot programme using the Rubicon Smart City platform.

“The City of Irving continually is looking to take advantage of technology and data that helps improve efficiency, maintenance and makes the city better for our residents,” said Irving’s solid waste service director, Brenda Haney.

“We think this specific smart city solution from Rubicon Global could be a game-changer for our fleet, and we look forward to exploring its impact and application throughout our system.”

The manager portal in RubiconSmartCity will collect all of the data and analytics and showcase to the city real time route updates, daily reporting, and operational insights.

“The platform helps cities of all sizes leverage data to make smarter decisions about waste, recycling, and city operations, leading to improvements in sustainability and quality of life that map to an overall mission to end waste,” said Michael Allegretti, chief public strategy officer at Rubicon Global.

“Using RubiconSmartCity, the City of Irving will be able to take the data that is pulled from its fleet and determine route optimisation, vehicle location, and streets that have been serviced- feeding important data back to the city and its citizens.”
