Monroe County, Miss., is employing an RFID-based system to track its garbage trucks, document the waste carts containing refuse that have been picked up and ensure the county bills residents appropriately for the service being provided.

The system enables the county to track 8,600 waste carts and five trucks as they pick up residential waste and bill residents for the pickups. Since fully deploying the system in August 2009, the county has identified 600 locations in which residents were receiving pickup service without being billed, according to Martin Demers, CEO of FleetMind Solutions, which provided the system's hardware, software and integration.
