Join us in discovering how technology is transforming businesses, from accurately tallying reusable containers to streamlining internal reporting processes across multinational corporations. Uncover the power of artificial intelligence in educating employees on proper waste disposal, ensuring materials find their way into the right bins, and how these forward-thinking technologies have universal applications, not only helping companies reduce waste contamination but also maximizing the value of materials through effective reuse and source-separated recycling, spanning various sectors, including boxes, food products, construction and demolition, and textiles.

An emphasis will be made on why technology is the linchpin in the quest to create a circular closed-loop economy. Learn how these innovations can save companies millions of dollars in waste avoidance fees. Focus on the reuse aspect of technology, dive deep into tracking mechanisms, explore data inputting techniques in platforms like Intelex for material management through waste profiles, explore how team collaboration plays a pivotal role, and unlock financial savings opportunities by identifying unnecessary materials and avoiding waste generation.
