Key Aspects of the Solution

  • Trash, recycling, organics and/or other materials can be collected in the same truck on one route.

  • Collection costs drop.
  • Other waste reduction programs can be easily integrated.

Co-Collection Can Be a Key Way To

  1. Reduce cost even more with PAYT systems
  2. Add new collection programs (e.g. organics) without adding routes
