What are the benefits of an automated waste collection system?
This type of collection system:
  • Improves the efficiency of the trash collection process by maximizing the number of stops collected per day
  • Delays the need for additional personnel and trucks.
  • Reduces the risk of injury to the drivers who have been subject to injury from sharp or heavy objects
  • Uses garbage carts that have wheels, are easy for residents to maneuver, can withstand strong winds and prevents the messy conditions associated with animals getting into garbage bags.
