Catch the latest in RFID solutions for waste management at Waste Expo 2010
RFID is enabling municipalities to dramatically improve the efficiency of their waste operations

HID Global, trusted leader in solutions for the delivery of secure identity, showcased its portfolio of radio-frequency identification (RFID) products for waste management at the Waste Expo conference. The company's extensive line of RFID tags - including a new, ultra-durable tag for metal containers - enables municipalities and industries to easily and cost-effectively track waste and recycling containers for waste collection efficiency.

HID Global products play a critical role in enabling operators and communities to provide higher levels of service while maximising revenues and reducing time and costs. With costs rising, landfill space shrinking and an overall increased interest in recycling, RFID is enabling municipalities to dramatically improve the efficiency of their waste operations. This technology is especially important to green initiatives including the increasingly popular "pay-as-you-throw" approaches to waste reduction and recycling advocacy. 
The company's line of waste-management RFID tags are being exhibited at Booth #4569 at the Georgia World Congress Centre, May 4-6.

With over a decade of innovative leadership in secure, contactless technology for a wide variety of RFID-enabled applications, HID Global has delivered over one billion RFID tags worldwide. Now integrators of waste management systems have access to the company's trusted expertise and extensive portfolio of transponders and reader module solutions.

When an RFID-equipped waste or recycling container is lifted and read, the data can be used for monitoring, sorting and tracking

Being shown for the first time is the Bin Tag OM, developed for use with the metal receptacles that are widely used for medical, chemical and hazardous wastes, as well as for general refuse. It can be mounted on containers of all shapes and sizes, as well as on plastic bins. The Bin Tag OM is a durable, temperature-resistant plastic tag which incorporates electronics designed to withstand temperature fluctuations from -40 degrees Centigrade to up to 90 degrees Centigrade (nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit). It is also highly resistant to challenging liquids such as salt water and oils.

"This is a rapidly changing time for the waste management industry. At no point has interest in reducing waste and increasing recycling been greater than now," said Brad Jarvis, Vice President of Product Marketing for HID Global. "Municipalities and operators need to improve services and cut costs. Our RFID solutions are enabling them to deliver new and higher levels of service for their residential and commercial customers. When it comes to reducing waste, increasing efficiencies and maximising revenues, RFID solutions are playing a central role."

RFID technology is finding a home in increasing range of applications in waste management, with new uses being developed every day. Tags integrate a unique ID number that is registered by the RFID reader, which is typically installed on a waste or recycling vehicle. When an RFID-equipped waste or recycling container is lifted and read, the data can be used for monitoring, sorting and tracking as well as for determining weight and other information.
