RFID has made its way through waste management (rubbish collection in particular) industry in recent years, RFID offers secure identification and traceability of bins; waste management companies can track containers (rubbish bins) and verify service using this technology. Thanks to Boink®, RFID tags on the bins are utilized as the prepaid token, allowing a secure identification, balance enquiry and payment. Boink® allows advance collection of funds and alleviates the uncertainties of credit and rubbish collection. The concept of pay as you throw has been floating around among local government agencies and waste management organizations, it is only with the use of proper prepayment management system that we can achieve this goal efficiently. Below we explain how Boink® can provide the missing link.
Unit-pricing or pay as you throw showed incredible results around the world and we are committed to support this initiative in New Zealand with our smarts and years of experience in RFID and prepayment. Boink® is our prepayment management system designed specifically for waste management industry to allow automated prepayment management using the RDIF tags already fitted to the bins. Flat rates and direct debit processes have multiple shortcomings for both the customer as well as the waste management company, shortcomings that Boink® resolves with advanced collection of funds. Boink® keeps a constant balance of the customer account and therefore does not result in customer bank account overdraft or collection of waste without payment.
