The issues of waste collection and recycling present a growing challenge to industry and regulators as well as the wider community, and more and more focus is being placed on weight data as an important asset when it comes to managing these challenges.
Weight data – which includes information about the amount of waste or garbage that has been collected, information about the recovery of various materials and information about the disposal of the waste – can be of enormous help to waste collection and waste management companies from both a legislative compliance perspective as well as from an operational efficiency perspective.
Basically, the collection of information about the collection and disposal of weight has become a key business imperative, and that’s why every waste collection vehicle, be it for commercial waste, residential waste, hazardous waste, green waste and so on, needs a WasteWeigh onboard weighing system.
WasteWeigh is a fully integrated onboard vehicle weighing system that has been specifically designed to perfectly fit waste collection vehicles. It uses a load cell-based weighing system which enables high accuracy and can be trade approved for invoicing purposes.
But why should every waste collection vehicle have WasteWeigh? Well, let’s investigate some of the benefits that make the technology a ‘must-have’.
