AMCS and the SIRTOM de Sedan yesterday signed a contract, to the value of €80,000 to deploy AMCS recycling and waste collection optimisation technology (hardware, software and professional services).
SIRTOM de Sedan is a group of local authorities that manage the collection, recycling and treatment of household waste. Their responsibility in the Ardennes region covers 44 districts and more than 55,000 people.
This award is highly significant for AMCS as it represents our first significant local authority reference customer in this country. Since mid 2012, AMCS has created 5 new jobs to support the French market entry and envisage creating a further 10 jobs over the coming 18 months.
SIRTOM de Sedan is implementing the pay as you throw legislation, known as the “Redevance Incitative”, and will use the collection data from the AMCS system to generate invoices for its residents. The software and vehicle technology installed will measure and analyse the amount of recycling taking place and invoice residents accordingly. Along with the use of RFID technology to track and determine the identity of the bin being collected, the SIRTOM will also make use of state of the art features such as GPS and mapping to monitor and optimise its collection operations.
