Solid Waste

What can Mobile311 do for Solid Waste?

All of us struggle with streamlining departments. This is a universal issue, particularly prominent in government, where there is a large level of transparency and accountability. Collection costs often account for 50-70% of a solid waste operation budget.

The good news is that modern technology allows us to achieve better reporting and better responding with little to no impact on our day-to-day routine. By arming Solid Waste employees with a simple icon on an inexpensive tablet or smartphone, you can realize significant savings in fuel, vehicle maintenance and worker overtime.

I need to cut back on fuel consumption.
Have garbage truck drivers mark brush, junk, and large items so other drivers can go point to point to pick them up.

An urgent pick up is needed. I need to reassign a unit.
See instantly which unit is closest to the issue on the web interface.

A resident has complained about a missed pick up.
With the breadcrumbs feature, see where and when your unit was. See if your truck was there before the pick up was curbside. Many clients have the drive flag any cans that are either not out or inaccessible so you know about it before the citizen calls.

My crews want to contribute more to the community.
Help out other departments by flagging pot holes, down signs, and more.

A citizen has called in a pick up and I need to put it into the system.
Use the flag tool to input work requests directly on the map from your computer.
