FAQ Waste Edge Fullness Monitors and Wasteview
Questions about Waste Edge Fullness Monitors
Q: My compactor container is picked up on a regular schedule. So what's the benefit of Waste Edge here?
A: Major dollar savings! Chances are that most of the time when your containers are pulled, there's a lot more space available in the container. With Waste Edge, your compactors will automatically call in their own pick-up orders when they are actually full and ready to be picked up.
Q: How can a Waste Edge Monitor reduce my hauling cost when I already wait until the compactor is full before I call for a pick-up?
A: The patented Waste Edge system is the only accurate way to monitor fullness in a compactor container. It is not possible to reliably determine fullness by watching a pressure gauge, tapping the side of a container - or marking the calendar. By automatically calling in for a pickup only when the container is actually full, Waste Edge can greatly reduce the number of pickups required.
