How Compology’s standardized Contamination Score enables profitable recycling & organics collection models
(This article is featured in Waste360’s November 2018 Tech Report)

Listen to Jason Gates, CEO of Compology, discuss the importance of a standardized measure of contamination in recycling and organics streams and how artificial intelligence has made standardized scoring possible.

As covered by WasteDive and in our previous Waste360 Tech Reports regarding contamination and China’s recycling ban, we’ve discussed 1) the need for American waste & recycling industry to re-adjust to a sustainable and profitable business model for recycling and organics in an ever-changing global economy and 2) the need for American businesses to increase their focus on reducing their environmental footprint to keep pace with an evolving global environmental movement.

By identifying, measuring and eliminating contamination at the source to produce clean recycling and organics streams, waste haulers can provide higher quality, profitable service and businesses can track towards zero waste and diversions goals. Artificial intelligence & the Internet of Things in the form of in-dumpster cameras enable our industry to do just that.

Standardized Contamination Measurement

Compology’s Contamination Score [CScore] is the trusted, standard for contamination identification and measurement and the key to a new generation of clean recycling and composting. CScore allows haulers to indisputably and appropriately bill customers, provide targeted, continuous, education to improve customer recycling compliance and switch flagged dumpsters to MSW routes to prevent contaminated material from reaching MRFs. aste generators and  cities can measure performance and track improvements towards zero waste and diversion goals.
