City of Irving, Texas Selects Rubicon Global

Atlanta, GA (April 2, 2019) — Rubicon Global, a technology company that powers a digital marketplace, provides a suite of SaaS products for waste, recycling, and smart city solutions, and collects and analyzes data for businesses and governments worldwide, today announced that the City of Irving, Texas has selected Rubicon® to provide a smart city pilot program to improve the residential waste and recycling services for its more than 240,000 residents.

Starting this month, the City of Irving will use the RUBICONSmartCity™ platform in a six-month pilot program to enhance its waste and recycling offerings and outcomes, both in terms of sustainability and customer service, through the integration of technology.

The City of Irving has more than 40 collection vehicles that service approximately 42,000 locations, all of which will be a part of this pilot program. Of paramount interest for the City of Irving during this pilot program is generating data for route optimization and management for its waste, recycling, and brush vehicles, as well as collecting data and documentation on the volume of material picked up for every route.

The RUBICONSmartCity™ platform includes a smartphone loaded with the Rubicon application, as well as an on-board computer plug-in device. Both will be placed in the City of Irving’s collection vehicles. This technology will allow for the collection of real time service confirmations, provide GPS vehicle tracking, and enable documentation of any driver issues or the inability to successfully complete a pick-up. The manager portal in RUBICONSmartCity™ will collect all of the data and analytics and showcase to the city real time route updates, daily reporting, and operational insights.

“The RUBICONSmartCity™ platform helps cities of all sizes leverage data to make smarter decisions about waste, recycling, and city operations, leading to improvements in sustainability and quality of life that map to an overall mission to end waste,” said Michael Allegretti, Chief Public Strategy Officer at Rubicon Global. “Using RUBICONSmartCity™, the City of Irving will be able to take the data that is pulled from its fleet and determine route optimization, vehicle location, and streets that have been serviced—feeding important data back to the City and its citizens.”

“The City of Irving continually is looking to take advantage of technology and data that helps improve efficiency, maintenance and makes the city better for our residents,” said Irving’s Solid Waste Service Director, Brenda Haney. “We think this specific smart city solution from Rubicon Global could be a game changer for our fleet, and we look forward to exploring its impact and application throughout our system.”

RUBICONSmartCity™ has been rolled out in more than 30 cities across the U.S., including Atlanta, GA; Columbus, GA; Fort Collins, CO; Montgomery, AL; Philadelphia, PA; Santa Fe, NM; Spokane, WA; Tyler, TX; and West Memphis, AR. The solution is also available on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketplace and the HGACBuy consortium.
