Coordinating solid waste collection and disposal for thousands of customers is a complicated job. San Diego-based Daily Disposal already used state-of-the-art automated trucks with mechanical arms that enabled drivers to pick up waste containers without getting out of their trucks. But from an operational standpoint, the company relied on laborious pen-and-paper methods to document routes and customer statuses.

With more than 90 drivers in the field each carrying a 30-page route printout, it needed a more efficient approach. To streamline operations, they invested in a custom mobile app together with Samsung Galaxy tablets and smartphones, connected with cellular service from Sprint.

Read the case study below to learn how digitizing Daily Disposal’s collection tracking processes is saving the company time and money, while reducing environmental impacts.
