Container monitoring and dynamic routing for Waste Management

WasteOS is a dynamic routing system built for the waste industry. It uses software and sensors to lower costs of services by building, delivering and analyzing the most efficient routes for a fleet. The company uses sensors, installed into waste containers, to collect data that is then analyzed and presented through web-based software. Compology’s technology measures and predicts the fullness level of the waste containers, allowing haulers to schedule and route drivers to empty just the containers that need attention. Compology provides waste haulers with access to data and insights that address these inefficiencies, also enabling them to improve their customer service.

The solution is provided by the San Francisco (USA) based company Compology.

The system is composed of 3 basic elements:

  1. Sensors: They track the fullness of front-load and roll-off containers and they are proven to withstand extreme environments.
  2. Tablets: The fleet is equipped with tablets that provide real-time information on the containers they need to service.
  3. Analytics: Users can track their assets and performance metrics to keep an edge over the competition through a cloud-based dashboard.

The main features of this solution are:

  • Software as a service: No hardware to purchase. Installation, maintenance and support are included at no extra cost.
  • Cloud hosted: No software to install or servers to setup. The dashboard is accessible from any internet-connected device.
  • Simple pricing: Pay on a per container, per month basis. Add more sensors or tablets at any time.
  • Scalable: The power of WasteOS grows as you scale it from one city to a nationwide network.
