Ken Tierney Product Manager IoT

Overfilled containers are a constant challenge for haulers that include financial costs due to higher disposal costs, safety issues and environmental damage.

Our experience and research indicates that haulers underestimate the incidence of overfilled containers by over 50%, particularly where they rely on conventional manual recording systems.

Read our infographic below on 5 Reasons not to Overlook Overfilled Containers to learn more.

1. Stop revenue leakage

Overfilled containers increase costs for haulers, causing:

Amazingly, overfill rates may be underestimated by as much as 100% due to conventional manual detection and recording.

With overfill charges of up to $25 in residential waste, more for commercial, we estimate a 10% overfill rate could generate $5,000 in charges per month. 

2. Reduce potential fines

Haulers can be fined for litter and pollution that escapes from overfilled containers. Manage the risk and reduce potential fines.

3. Improve customer service

Collection time per stop increases when handling overfilled containers. Eliminate delays to improve customer service.

4. Increase route productivity

Make route planning more accurate and increase capacity by ensuring overfilled containers don’t delay route completion.

5. Maximize revenue upsell opportunities

Track customer behavior to identify repeat offenders and upsell to a larger container or more frequent service.
