Recycling in Automation
A southern Nevada a recycling waste disposal company, Republic Services, resorted to an effective solution for the low 2% of resident recycling by adopting technology from Siemens Digital Factory.
The Siemens hardware and software solution is able to separate recyclable materials by automating and controlling the incoming line of material. With the solution in place, Republic Services was able to standardize the way in which its residents were recycling. It distributed a one-size-fits-all recycling bin that would be easily processed and separated by the Siemens Digital Factory of hardware and software. Republic Services saw a 28% growth in recycling within the first year due to the Siemens solution.
