The City of Montgomery, AL announced it entered a three-year deal with Rubicon to deploy RUBICONSmartCity technology across the city’s sanitation department. The announcement follows a six-month pilot of the partnership in 2018.

Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange said in a statement the partnership is an “essential part of our overall Smart City strategy,” as is the case for a number of cities hoping to optimize waste and recycling operations. RUBICONSmartCity has now been rolled out in more than 30 U.S. cities, including major markets like Philadelphia, Atlanta and Santa Fe, NM.
