How Does RFID-Enabled Waste Management Tracking Work?

First, a specialized HID RFID hard tag is embedded into or affixed to the bin/container. Then, an RFID reader with antenna is integrated into the truck’s loading structure to instantly capture the IDs of each bin. Data collected — like container type, weight or collection time — is used to monitor collection activity, improve route planning, elaborate statistics and reduce operating costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How is RFID used in waste management tracking?

When it comes to waste management tracking, RFID is used to monitor waste containers, oversee collection routes and optimize the management of waste disposal.

2. How does RFID improve waste management efficiency?
