Smart Waste Compactors: The Benefits for Hotels
By Michael Hess Founder/Chief Executive Officer, Waste Harmonics | September 22, 2019
Today, almost everything we use is driven by technology. If you need to find a hotel on the go, you can pick up your smartphone and book a room in a matter of minutes. If you want to walk a couple of blocks to a restaurant, your smartwatch can feed you directions to make sure you're going the right way. But smart technology doesn't end with personal technology.
Enter the smart waste compactor. That's right-your hotel's waste program is about to get smarter. If you're a hotel owner, this is a technology you must hear about.
When it comes down to it, the goal of a compactor is to condense waste to optimize the space for everyday trash disposal. By compressing the trash that's coming from your hotel's waste streams, you can reduce the equipment needed on-site and lessen the frequency of trips from your waste haulers-saving you time and money. A smart waste compactor takes all of these advantages to the next level and delivers a real-time, cloud-based dashboard to give you the insights you need about your hotel's waste use.
Only a few service providers offer this type of technology. It doesn't involve a bunch of complex equipment or long periods of downtime to implement. It's essentially a small attachment that sits directly on the compactor and feeds data to a secure online portal. This enables you to tune in as frequently as you want to keep an eye on your waste program data.
