Management software and hardware for the waste industry

Based in Ireland, AMCS has developed an integrated IT system comprising both software and hardware to provide management information to waste management companies. AMCS’ technology monitors the location of the refuse truck and customer bin and measures the weight of the waste in each bin as it is being tipped into truck. This data is transmitted to the waste management operator’s back office in real-time and is applied to real-time billing and invoicing for waste collected.

This technology can be used by the waste management industry to disincentivise the sending of waste to landfill through weight-related charging and/or to incentivise increased waste recycling. It can also be used to enhance the operational efficiency and profitability of waste management operators through the optimisation of waste collection routes.
