Technology Suite from Rubicon Helps City Governments Run More Sustainable Waste and Recycling Operations

Rubicon has released RUBICONSmartCity on the Geotab Marketplace, a comprehensive source for organizations seeking to better manage their fleets.

Designed to improve service and reduce costs, RUBICONSmartCity equips city partners with a full-service software system for managing municipal waste and recycling collection in residential and commercial settings.

Waste and recycling collection is one of the largest annual expenses that city governments face. The data and insights collected by RUBICONSmartCity deliver direct taxpayer savings for cities. Rubicon’s inaugural Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report highlighted the potential for over $200 million in taxpayer savings across American cities during a ten-year time horizon.

Through its partnership with Rubicon and the deployment of RUBICONSmartCity, the City of Montgomery, AL earned a Smart 50 Award, a program which annually recognizes the 50 most transformative smart city projects across the world.

“Rubicon’s mission is to end waste, in all of its forms,” said Michael Allegretti, Chief Strategy Officer at Rubicon. “By offering RUBICONSmartCity on the Geotab Marketplace, our goal is to help current and prospective customers streamline their waste and recycling operations to accomplish sustainability goals, especially now, as so many cities are operating remotely and seeking immediate solutions for remote fleet management.”
