Starting at 11:30 am on Wednesday, October 5… Save your seat in Room 1 for the Buildings & Infrastructure congress track. We have back-to-back sessions that dive into a proven, IoT platform that is empowering cities worldwide to modernize public space waste management for measurable savings and community impact.

Join Bigbelly’s Leila Dillon in Room 1 at 11:30 am as she moderates a discussion on the Transformation of a Core City Service with a Smart IoT Platform. We are joined on stage by representatives and city officials from the cities of Antwerp, Dublin / Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Council, and Stockholm. We will talk about the implementation, application, and success of a smart waste management platform in these communities and how they are leveraging this smart city platform for both their operations today and planning for tomorrow.

Smart IoT platforms are changing the way cities have transformed one of their core city services – waste management. Panelists will discuss how technology can deliver improved productivity and better communities for the citizens. City leaders will share how they implemented a smarter way to handle public space waste – keeping trucks off the roads, waste in its place, and capturing data to serve the neighborhoods of today and plan for the growth of tomorrow.

Remain in Room 1 at 12:15 for a deep dive into the story of An Innovative Solution for Waste Collection in Ireland as presented by Richard Shakespeare, currently the Assistant Chief Executive for Dublin City Council and formerly Director for Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.

A destination port town in close proximity to Dublin city center, the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown community embraced a transformative smart solution redefining their public space waste operation. Hear from the city official who spearheaded this innovative project about the lessons learned in deploying an IoT technology platform from a small pilot to a full-scale implementation. Workforce engagement, community beautification, and measurable savings were key factors in creating the most efficient waste operation in a global municipality. More info…
