Rubicon’s technology will be installed across the city’s entire waste and recycling fleet, numbering more than 60 vehicles.

“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 strategy officer for Rubicon Global, in a statement. “Piloting RUBICONSmartCity, the city of Montgomery was able to view and analyze data that is helping the city improve customer service and shape future policy decisions. We are thrilled that the city of Montgomery decided to award Rubicon this smart city contract, and we look forward to a fantastic partnership in the coming years.”
