Rubicon’s smart city product is now powering the City of Atlanta’s entire solid waste, recycling, and street-sweeping fleet of 150 vehicles, digitizing operations and driving greater efficiency

Rubicon Technologies, Inc., a leading digital marketplace for waste and recycling and provider of innovative software-based products for businesses and governments worldwide, today announced that it has entered into a three-year smart city partnership with the City of Atlanta, Georgia (the “City”) to help enhance its residential waste and recycling services.

The agreement will put Rubicon’s smart city software at the heart of Atlanta’s Department of Public Works. Rubicon will help the Department enhance its operations to become a fully digital function, with a focus on route optimization, digital route sheets, digital work flows, tracking exceptions in the field, improved routing for the City’s bulky waste pickup drivers, and street sweeping. The City will use Rubicon’s technology, procured through Sourcewell, to balance its waste and recycling routes to streamline collection, track material and tonnage on its bulky trash routes, and reduce missed pickups and unnecessary go-backs. With RUBICONSmartCity™ in place, the Department of Public Works will be able to closely monitor route performance, identify areas where waste, recycling, and street sweeping services can be improved, and make data-driven decisions to enhance route efficiency and better serve the Atlanta community.

Rubicon is returning to its roots in Atlanta, the site of the Company’s former headquarters and where the RUBICONSmartCity product was born.

“We are thrilled to once again be working with the City of Atlanta to deliver innovative waste and recycling solutions through the power of Rubicon’s smart city technology,” said Conor Riffle, Senior Vice President of Smart Cities at Rubicon. “Our partnership is already helping Atlanta to better manage its waste and recycling services, while also improving route efficiency, reducing costs, and enhancing the overall quality of life for its residents.”

With a population of 498,715, the City of Atlanta focuses its smart city efforts on five core pillars: multi-mode transport, public safety, the environment, city operations efficiency, and citizen/business engagement. The City leverages data to make better-informed decisions that impact its residents, visitors, and businesses. In utilizing a data-centric model, the City is able to use descriptive, prescriptive, and predictive capabilities to radically improve city operational efficiency, service delivery, and transparency.

RUBICONSmartCity is the smartest way for cities, counties, and other municipalities to manage heavy-duty fleets. It is a proprietary, cloud-based technology suite that helps local governments run faster, smarter, and more effective waste, recycling, and heavy-duty municipal fleet operations. Local governments today are required to do more with less. RUBICONSmartCity helps existing government-owned fleets improve neighborhood streetscapes by monitoring vehicle health, improving driver behavior, and ensuring that materials are collected efficiently. The results: fewer vehicle accidents, less road wear, and safer communities.
