The London Borough of Lewisham waste management department trained itself to produce DataStreet, which it is now selling to other local authorities.
The software allows collection-vehicle drivers better control of their rounds, which should help counter recruitment problems and boost the value of collections.
Lewisham head of environment Nigel Tyrell was pleased with the technologys launch at the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management exhibition in Paignton last month.
Tyrell said: Everyone we talked to said they still used round sheets, and people were very interested in our system.
For years I have wanted to get hold of the data from my kerbside collections.
With the help of Computer Literacy, we have designed a system that empowers the driver and improves communications.
