How Smart Cities are Managing Solid Waste


The idea of smart cities was first developed by technology giant IBM, which created a worldwide initiative called Smarter Cities aimed at helping cities and companies leverage data to improve operational performance in many sectors, including waste management. And now, with the concept of a circular economy gaining more traction, the trend of smart cities is on the rise.

Los Angeles-based Ecube Labs Co., for example, is using solar-powered waste compacting bins, data analytics and a resource management platform to help cities optimize the efficiency of their waste collection value chains.

And Rubicon Global, an international cloud-based, full-service waste and recycling company focused on sustainability, is utilizing hauling technology, consumer-facing technology and sustainability technology to help cities and companies improve their operations.
