Gateshead Council had to look at ways to make their Waste Management Services more efficient. The council introduced route optimization, and as a result, has experienced significant savings in time, money and resources.
Gateshead Council’s key challenges were making efficiencies in Waste Management Services, dealing with the collection of both residual waste and recycling and maintaining good service to 90,000 properties in the Council Borough.
Gateshead Council chose RouteSmart route optimization software upon recommendation from neighboring Newcastle City Council who had seen significant savings in their waste management and gritting.
Over £400,000 per year is being saved by the Council in addition to a wide range of other operational and environmental benefits.
