The planning of urban waste collection, whether refuse or recyclable waste, is one of the most significant responsibilities of a municipality, due to the very high costs involved.
Tools for planning are therefore as important as actual operational data collected, such as distance travelled, working times, vehicle maintenance costs, person-hours worked, etc.
The aim of the system is to plan routes on a daily basis, minimising total distance travelled and achieving the planned service aims with vehicle and personnel resources available.
The automatic collection of actual service data for each route, such as type of waste, driving and stoppage times, distance travelled and total quantity of waste collected, allow the impact of any adopted measures to be quantified.
