The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) and the Tri-County Solid Waste District in the Northwest Arkansas recently signed up to use a web-based auditing technology to increase commercial recycling.
SWACO is one of 52 solid waste districts in Ohio and has become a catalyst for recycling and reuse programs in Franklin County. The SWACO service area has a population of over one million and includes more than 28,000 businesses. The Tri-County Solid Waste District is one of 16 regional districts in Arkansas and has a population of about 325,000 and 8,600 businesses.
The patented SmartEngine is the first web-based waste auditing technology that public solid waste agencies can integrate to their web sites to promote increased recycling and online audits of a property’s solid waste practices and service charges. A report, using local waste collection data and recycling service providers, is generated for each business. SmartEngine can reach businesses at a fraction of the time and money it costs to physically conduct onsite waste audits.
Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. launched the current version of SmartEngine at SWANA’s 2004 WASTECON conference in Phoenix. They are now formally marketing SmartEngine to local governments across the U.S.
