London-based Greenline Environmental, which offers a 24/7 waste collection and disposal service, has modernised its operations with paperless PDAs for drivers, a bespoke software system and the introduction of a pay-by-weight service for trade waste collections.
Darryn Hodges, managing director, said: “This technology is helping us to provide a better, more cost-effective service. Gone are the days when you just throw anything in a bin and forget about it.
“We now have all the information we need at the touch of a button so we can show it to customers and help them improve how they manage their waste by looking at other options such as separate glass or food waste collections.”
Greenline chose the Enviroweigh bin-weighing system from Vehicle Weighing Solutions for its 26-tonne trade waste refuse truck.
Hodges added: “Our drivers log on to the PDAs when they start work, download their round for the day, and all the information is there about the customer and what they are collecting. They also serve as satnav devices, which is really important as the drivers are travelling to different locations across London every day.”
