Grand Rapids Waste Disposal
The cities of Cincinnati and Grand Rapids, Mich. have implemented an RFID-based recycling system from the duo of UPM RFID and Cascade Engineering. The two municipalities are using RFID technology to optimize waste management processes and to motivate citizen behavioral change with incentive-based recycling programs and pay-as-you-throw pricing.
Cascade Engineering’s RFID system for the waste management consists of recycling and trash containers mounted with RFID xtreme tags from Xtreme RFID, which are powered by UPM ShortDipole ultra-high frequency inlays from UPM RFID. With a 10-year life guarantee, the tags snap securely in place below trash cart lids and perform in extreme temperatures and weather conditions.
When sanitation crews collect consumers’ garbage and recycling, the truck’s on-board data collection system capture tag data, recording the time and GPS coordinates as well as weight of the pickup. This information can be used to automate data collection and billing, while also providing municipalities with insights they can use to enhance service, from answering customer queries about pickups to fine-tuning driving routes.
In Cincinnati, since installing the RFID system, citizen recycling participation has increased 79% and lead to a cost savings of $930, 000 in waste disposal and labor costs. The city of Grand Rapids is extending RFID technology to waste collection, implementing usage-based pricing, in addition to using GPS and RFID data to plan sanitation crew driving routes for optimal operational and fuel efficiency.blogging for dummies blog via google blog versus article turn blogging into career blog layout templates blog till barn blogging without writing blogging of a product considerations before blogging blog yellow can bloggers make good money blogging of photography blogging essentials blog by gabby petito blogging microphone blog at vlog kahulugan blog outline template blogging at college blog mockup blogging courses for beginners blobfish blogging the boys trolling the nation blog questions blog writing jobs add blog to next js blog platforms free at the bottom of everything blog blogging your way blogging guide blogging lessons blogging about tv shows blogging how to blogging guidelines blog with pictures blogging in zimbabwe blogging by definition blog under 100 blog before publishing blogging coach blog writers near me blogging guide substack blog among us blogging name generator blog till westermayer blog through the gaps blogging from your phone blogging sites like tumblr blogging about food blog with ben translate blogging into kannada blogging from ipad blog set up blogging rules blogging anonymously blogging your passion blogging courses for beginners blog templates blogging degree blogging events near me blogging over 50 blog into the gloss blog by sophia lee blogging like website blog out of date blog categories blogging at college blog on cruelty towards animals blogging or vlogging blogging the boys podcast blog during lockdown blog during spanish period psychology behind blogging blogging the boys blogging vs vlogging blog behind the scenes blogging like apps blogging google blog before flight blogging conferences 2022 blogging websites blog meaning in english blogging jobs from home bloggingpro theme pro blogging idea blog feed initials difference between blogging and microblogging blogging in the elementary classroom blogging quiz blogging through facebook blogging definition and example blogging guide blogging services blogging by google blogging for business blogging about pets blogging over blog xbox blogging gigs opposite of blogging blogging with shopify blogging zenith blogging blast off bloggingx vlogging camera with flip screen psychology behind blogging blog en espanol blog xiaomi blog xanga blog niche ideas blogging uses zen cart blogging blog for kids blogging on facebook blog after effects blog off white blogging about blogging blog topics blogging after retirement blogging to relieve stress blogging godaddy blogging groups near me blog journal blog even 3 blog tv similarities between blog and hyper poetry blogging from home blogging about pets blogging at 40 blogging definition and example blog post length blogging through facebook blog with pictures blogging rubric blogging at college blogging as a job blogging zarada blogging platforms examples advantages of blogging over social media blogging through pinterest blog pro anwar blog off road blogging platforms free blogging at 40 blogging income after 1 year blogging sign up blog before business blog in chinese what do you mean by blog blogging set up moving beyond blogging blog to blog post examples blogging about my life blog biz bootcamp turning blogging into a business blogging questions insidetracker blog blogging your passion difference between blogging and website blog contra ponto what happens at the bottom of the ocean blogging alert xyz blogging your way to the front row diff between blog and vlog blogging in the classroom blogging your way blogging out meaning blogging definition and example blogging millionaire blog pro 2.0 template blog into spanish blogging helps your inbound marketing by blogging with wix blogging software blogging takes off traduzione blogging quiz blogging during covid 19 blogging topics blogging of photography
