Commercial waste removal in the future will get as simple as placing trash into containers that are differently labeled. These containers will be equipped with pneumatic tubes that will deposit the waste directly to the recycling site.
Businesses will get charged monthly fees depending on the amount of commercial waste deposited to the designated landfill. The containers will be equipped with sensors to prevent the wrong type of waste from getting sucked and deposited. A wrong category of waste will get discouraged from leaving the waste generation site.
Even though you may think of this new innovative technology as only a dream, you might get surprised to know that more than ten patents have been applied in the commercial waste disposal category.
Let’s look at some innovations in commercial waste management that will revolutionize the industry.
Front Load Dumpsters Equipped with Sensors
Sensors get used to detect the weight of the dumpster. You will know whether the dumpster is empty or full. The dumpster’s weight information is sent directly to the waste management company, enabling them to schedule a pickup.
Optimize Route Efficiency
Commercial waste trucks will optimize their route efficiency using the information sent by the sensors. It will then enable the trucks to save time and money.
Many apps get used by waste management companies to predict the best time for pickup. Trucks will save the time spent in traffic, which helps cut fuel costs.
Most innovations happening in the waste management industry are about improving safety. Companies provide safety awareness education to truck drivers to drive safely when picking up dumpsters.
A commercial waste safety manual was designed since everyone recognizes the importance of the safety of drivers and the public.
Energy Conversion and Other Improvements at Landfills
The landfills’ design, construction, and purpose have seen many improvements. The many changes have helped improve the quantity of processed waste, and it has also proven to be beneficial to the environment.
Used cooking oil is getting recycled into biodiesel, a popular innovation that is vastly appreciated. Large landfills can also capture biogases that later get converted into energy. It has helped local administrations conserve energy.
