RUBICONSmartCity helps city governments run waste and recycling operations faster, smarter, and more effectively.
Through Rubicon’s patented technology, our smartphone app tracks metrics such as vehicle location, route completion, and service confirmations in real-time. It empowers drivers to relay issues as they happen and document important information like weight tickets, blocked bins, or contaminated recycling. The technology also provides navigation, route information, transit time estimates, truck fault codes, and driving information. All of this information is fed directly back to a secure website for supervisors to evaluate and assess issues in real time.
Rubicon’s technology currently powers waste and recycling data collection for more than 30 cities, including Atlanta, GA; Santa Fe, NM; and Columbus, GA. In just one of these cities, we identified potential savings of over $700,000 annually.
