Clinical waste company uses TROVAN RFID to manage its waste containers

The largest ‘full facilities’ clinical waste company in the UK (Healthcare Environmental) uses Trovan transponders and readers to manage distribution and return of clinical waste containers. The company has been using Trovan technology for over 10 years and has in excess 25,000 containers fitted with Trovan transponders.

Today, distribution is carried out using the LID-710BLE reader linked to smart tablet running an Android App. Return to depot containers are scanned and weighed simultaneously when entering a controlled load cell area with an ANT-612 antenna linked to an LID-608 decoder.

Container identification, weight, waste type and customer data is captured and sent to their ‘cloud’ based server.
