Charleston County rolls out RFID to
120K homeowners for recycling collection

full article

The retail industry is embracing item level RFID for the enhanced visibility that the technology provides when it comes to monitoring product movement through the supply chain and on store shelves.

While much has been written about the high stakes for retailers, another industry is just discovering the plethora of benefits that result from increased visibility and the attractive ROI from harvesting that newfound data.

RFID is becoming big business at the far end of the supply chain, as trash haulers and recyclers embrace the technology. This week Intermec announced a partnership with systems integrator Sonrai Systems that has helped Charleston County, S.C. to more than double its recycling participation. The program has been so successful that it will be expanded from a pilot program for 5,000 households to a major deployment to 120,000 homes over the next two years.

"The ROI on this is starting to scream off the page," says Tony Romano, business development manager with systems integrator Sonrai Systems. "This usage data has never been available. This is going to save the County millions."
