The City of Deerfield Beach Recycling & Solid Waste Management fleet is designed to focus on efficiency in all ways.
The automated collection allows the employees to stay in the trucks, reducing opportunity for work-related injuries and increasing route efficiency. This reduces overhead cost, which reflects in customer pricing.
The carts are outfitted with special Radio Frequency ID tags (RFIDs) which will be scanned by readers on the new collection vehicles to collect data to help the City enhance services and reward residents for recycling.
The City’s trucks are powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and are certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to exhaust air that is cleaner than what the truck takes in. This reduces our impact on the environment. The trucks are also cheaper to maintain.
In the end, the service routes are faster, poisonous emissions are lower, and maintenance is cheaper.
