Sarasota County has provided residential and commercial solid waste collection services to its residents and businesses via a franchise system for more than 35 years. More than 154,000 residential customers and 2,500 commercial customers are serviced weekly equating to 14M+ collections annually.
Collection service providers started using “automated collection” with carts in the early 1980’s. There are a number of benefits to this type of collection including:
- Eliminating the need to separate materials, making it easier for residents to recycle.
- Creating operational efficiencies and decreasing workers compensation claims.
- Aligning with recycling processors single-stream sorting technology in response to changes in collection.
