Bin brother is watching London waste crews

City of London refuse collectors will be watched by cameras on their rounds after technology was installed by waste management firm Enterprise.

The company, which has collected domestic and commercial waste in the Square Mile for 20 years, installed hard disk recording equipment on its fleet of vehicles

Enterprise says the system will allow “continual service monitoring” to identify health and safety breaches and other incidents.

Regional managing director David Martin said: “Typically our service operates in small streets with lots of traffic. 

“This equipment provides us with a month’s worth of recording so we can monitor our teams to make sure they are working in a safe manner. 

“If there are any incidents we can find out exactly what happened and, in the event of any fraudulent insurance claims made against us, the recorded footage can be used as evidence in court.”

Innovative Safety Systems has just completed installing the technology to the new fleet, as well as providing training on how to operate the new equipment.
