Rubicon Global, a technology company that provides a suite of Software as a Service products for waste, recycling and smart city solutions, announced the city of Irving, Texas, has selected Rubicon to provide a smart city pilot program to improve the residential waste and recycling services for its more than 240,000 residents.
The city of Irving will use the RUBICONSmartCity platform in a six-month pilot program to enhance its waste and recycling offerings and outcomes, both in terms of sustainability and customer service.
The city has more than 40 collection vehicles that service approximately 42,000 locations, all of which will be a part of this pilot program.
“The RUBICONSmartCity 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, in a statement.
“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 in a statement.
Starting this month, Rubicon Global noted that cities and local governments across the country will be able to purchase RUBICONSmartCity directly though HGACBuy in the Smart City Fleet Services Equipment category.
“As more and more cities look to implement technology as a central part of a path toward greater sustainability and ending waste, Rubicon will continue to be at the forefront of setting the smart cities agenda, and we are thrilled to be a part of the HGACBuy consortium to help make that mission a reality for cities and municipalities.”
