Details of Rubicon’s smart city partnership with the City of Fort Smith, Arkansas were featured on Fort Smith’s KFSM (CBS) again today, this time in the 6:00pm slot:

Here’s a transcript of the remarks:

“New tonight, the City of Fort Smith sanitation department is launching a six-month pilot program promising to bring a smart city solution to residential and commercial waste management and recycling services. The RUBICONSmartCity platform includes a smartphone-based mobile app, a plug-in device, and a web-based portal. The technology will allow the city to collect real-time service confirmations, provide GPS vehicle tracking, and enable documentation of driver issues. The department has more than 40 sanitation vehicles, and the landfill serves about 300,000 residents throughout the area. The six-month pilot is on a trial basis at no cost to the City of Fort Smith or the customer.”

The partnership, which is designed to improve the residential waste services of Fort Smith’s nearly 90,000 residents and a landfill that serves up to 300,000 residents, can be read about in more detail in our press release.
