VIDEO: Compology Waste Metering™ Overview

For decades, property owners have been able to meter their water, electricity and gas consumption. Now, they can also meter their waste and recycling to save on costs and drive toward sustainability goals. How? In-dumpster cameras and artificial intelligence (AI) automatically measure fullness, content, location and activity, so you know what’s happening at every dumpster and across your business. Learn more in our latest overview video:

If you oversee waste & recycling for a Fortune 500 company, a franchise or a commercial property, then you likely know the frustrations of overpaying for waste, getting fined for contamination in your recycling, and having no real oversight over your waste vendors or if they’re missing scheduled pickups.

Other utility services like gas, water and electricity have been metered for decades…so why hasn’t waste? It’s time we introduce you to waste metering technology.

With Compology, you’ll be able to see inside your dumpsters from anywhere. And with complete oversight, you can cut waste costs by 30% and meet your Zero Waste goals.

So how does it work? Smart dumpster cameras take images inside your dumpsters 3 times a day and at every pickup. Artificial intelligence then processes those images to deliver four main data points:
1. Where a dumpster is located
2. If and when a dumpster is serviced
3. How full a dumpster is currently, how full it is at pickup, and how fullness trends over time
4. How much and what type of contamination is present

Compology not only automatically tags and logs contamination any time unwanted material is identified in your recycling dumpsters, but also sends a text or email alert to anyone who needs it. You can also get alerted when teams aren’t breaking down cardboard boxes and disposing of them properly!

Now, imagine you have this type of remote visibility and oversight across dozens, hundreds or even thousands of dumpsters. Here’s the impact you can have with that level of data.

First, verify if you’re getting the service you’re paying for. Our data shows the national average for missed pickups is 10%! In this example, this company can see nearly 13% of pickups they’re paying for aren’t happening. They can now use this data to take action on a daily basis to receive credits for missed pickups, or to solve billing disputes.

Next, our AI lets you continuously and automatically rightsize your service levels to align with your actual waste output. This is where real savings take hold with most companies seeing service costs reduced by 30%!

And with fewer service stops needed, you’re not only being efficient, but also driving sustainability by reducing truck miles traveled and carbon emissions! Now imagine the environmental impact as this adds up over time and across all your locations.

You’ll also be able to improve recycling rates in support of your company’s Zero Waste and diversion goals. And also be able to analyze contamination trends over time, to identify shortcomings, educate teams and improve recycling behavior.

And lastly, you can finally provide accurate waste and diversion metrics for annual sustainability and CSR reports that are based on actual fullness levels rather than estimations.
