The SmartTrash(TM) System time-stamps, records and analyzes activity on trash compactors and wirelessly transmits vital data such as energy utilization, directional valve shifts, safety door switches and unit logistics to the ATM data center. By selecting the Aeris network, SmartTrash(TM) benefits from pre-activation service at the factory and lower operating costs via improved network intelligence and notifications on unusual device activity.
The Te c h n o l o g y American Trash Management’s (AT M ) Smart Trash™ hardware is installed on the compactor’s control panel. The SmartTrash System timestamps, re c o rds and analyzes all compactor activity: energy utilization, directional valve shifts, safety door switches and the pickup and re t u rn of the unit.Then all this data is relayed wirelessly from anywhere in the world to AT M ’s Data Center. No phone lines or linesharing devices are necessary.The Service Compactor data from SmartTrash™ is relayed to ATM’s Data Center where it’s processed and evaluated by a trained technician. SmartTrash™ requires a human interface between compactor and hauler, because no algorithm can consistently project a compactor’s optimal pickup time. There are too many data anomalies, unforeseen events and, too many outside factors such as holidays, sales, weather, and hauling re q u i rements.
That’s why ATM combines the latest in technology with the best “computer” in the world—the human brain—to make the final compactor pickup decision. Once a decision is made,AT M ’s technician contacts the hauler by phone, email or fax to schedule the pull. This same technician is available via toll-free number to troubleshoot problems, dispatch repair services, audit bills and shop for lower waste hauling rates. The Result Putting advanced data telemetry systems in the hands of a trained technician enables SmartTrash™ to reduce compactor pickups without causing “pack-outs” or other hauling problems. Add in all the additional services AT M ’s technicians provide, and the result is the most sophisticated moneysaving and hassle-reducing trash management service available today
