Recycle Track Systems (RTS), a New York-based service provider known for its technology platform, has won its first-ever municipal waste collection contract. Valued at $3.75 million, the deal with La Porte, Indiana runs for four years with the option of a three-year extension.
This contract was previously held by Waste Management. Now, RTS will facilitate service to 7,500 residential and government locations through local company LakeShore Recycling & Disposal. Every truck will be outfitted with the RTS technology platform, which allows residents to manage service and helps the city optimize routing.
“We’re thrilled to start this partnership with the City of La Porte which is joining the smart cities movement to become more efficient in managing waste,” said Adam Pasquale, co-founder and COO, in a statement. “Waste collection is an essential city service and we’re excited to introduce our technology solutions to help improve services for residents and support the city’s sustainability goals for the future.”
