Many cities throughout South America, particularly those located in Argentina, face serious problems in urban solid waste management. These difficulties are due to several factors, including the absence of parameters for measurement, as well as obstacles to tracking usage. One way to collect waste is through containerized routes. These routes have established frequencies, and trucks often pick up containers before they are full. Learn how RFID and Internet of Things technologies are being used to create visibility and traceability, as well as to reduce operating costs by public and private operators.
