RFID-based recycling program pays off for Dayton, Ohio

An RFID-based recycling solution deployed by the city of Dayton, Ohio is proving so successful that the city projects a return-on-investment in less than one year and yearly savings of $100,000.

The program is being deployed to lower recycling costs and increase participation in existing recycling efforts. Dayton is trying to curb the increasing expenditure associated with sending trash to landfills at a cost of more than $30 per ton from the city’s 67,000 homes.

The solution from CDO is based on Alien’s Enterprise Class RFID Readers and CDO’s revolutionary High Value Asset Tracking (HVAT) platform. RFID tags are attached to recycling bins, and Alien’s ALR-9900+ readers are installed on the recycle/garbage trucks. Residents who make use of their 32- or 96-gallon recycling containers are entered in a lottery the following month for one of four $100 prizes.

“This program has experienced tangible benefits in such a short period of time that we anticipate other municipalities will move to quickly replicate these efforts nationwide,” said Mike Frieswyk, Alien Technology, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, in a press release.

The city of Dayton uses the HVAT platform to integrate with the Alien hardware and intelligently parse the data to extract meaningful information and provide actionable results. Through this interpretation process, the city can strategically plan its routes, schedules, budgets and usage rates. The custom report generation and modular nature of HVAT allows city officials complete visibility and control.

According to city officials, the RFID-based program has resulted in a 40 percent increase in recycling participation and an increase in recycled material from 200 to 535 tons in just the first few months of operation. The program has also allowed the city to restructure routes, renegotiate recycling rates and balance staffing.
