Visionscape Sanitation Solutions receives innovative RFID Fleet for waste management in Lagos
The consignment consists of a series of waste trucks, from various rear end loaders to operational vehicles. The company is set to begin operations across the State to roll out the next phase of their contract for the Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI).
The CLI was established to address, enforce and regulate the challenges in the solid waste management systems within Lagos State.
The initiative is focused on improving the environment to make it cleaner, safer and healthier for all Lagos State residents, as well as improving operational efficiency. Visionscape is currently in a public-private partnership with the Lagos State Government, set to provide management services for the CLI, under the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA).
“The addition to the waste management fleet is in line with our commitment to provide integrated waste management services, using state-of-the-art equipment and innovative solutions to help transform megacities.” Said Thomas Forgacs, Chief Operations Officer, Visionscape Sanitation Solutions.
As a pioneer in environmental solutions, the Visionscape trucks are fully equipped and embedded with cutting-edge features, which includes a Global Positioning System (GPS), radio-frequency identification (RFID), and automotive Controller Area Network (CAN bus) system. These innovative features are designed to meet the operational needs facing waste management across the State.
Using these systems, Visionscape will be able to thoroughly monitor and track the States waste collection process, ensuring the trucks are seamlessly deployed for effective waste collection, and all communities within Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) and Local Government Areas (LGAs) are covered efficiently.
“In the last six months, we have surveyed all of Lagos State and collated vital data to make our operations highly effective. We therefore understand population density of the communities and areas that will be serviced, even up to the number of streets and households across the State. This preliminary assessment has aided us to know the amount of waste that will be generated in any particular location”, Forgacs stated.
