Data-Driven Service Optimization

Waste Metering™ collects daily data on dumpster fullness, fullness at pick up, contents and contaminants and verifies service events. AI analyzes those data points to automatically identify optimization opportunities for service schedule, dumpster size and dumpster type adjustments for each of your locations.

Better Hauler Oversight

Our Waste Metering™ technology automatically flags when a hauler misses a scheduled pick-up and flags it to your dedicated Roadrunner support staff so we can resolve any issues quickly and make sure you're getting the service you're paying for.

Our Waste Metering™ technology can detect when dumpsters are at risk for overflow, when a recycling dumpster has been contaminated, and when a hauler has missed a scheduled service and alert your dedicated support team. With this level of visibility, Roadrunner can take proactive action to keep your operations running smoothly.
