Refuse Collection - In Cab

In Cab Computing

Collective is the UK’s most popular RCV and sweeper in cab computer solution which has been proven in 500.  The driver uses a colour touch-screen display with clear, simple icons to view everything they need to know about their route.  The built-in GPS provides vehicle tracking but also ensures the display shows only the premises/jobs of immediate interest.Crews love Collective, and the benefit of faster round completion, reduced recalls for missed jobs, not to mention the elimination of paperwork.  Back Office staff see information reported from the In Cab computers in real time, not need to wait till the end of day paperwork is returned and entered on the system!  See the worksheets update like magic before your eyes without any paperwork.

Workpacks (rounds)

Using our bespoke software designed for domestic and commercial waste and mechanical sweeping duties crews can easily view and complete their daily work, job by job. Changes to a crew’s workpack can be made “on the fly” allowing jobs to be quickly reassigned from crew to crew

Route Information

Get rid of the clipboards and paper with on screen information about assisted collections, gate access codes, multiple bins and other special arrangements. This is all linked in real time to the back office system. In built navigation, complete with low bridge, weight/width restrictions alerts, guides the crew through their Workpack, to tipping points, depots and other key locations.

Crews can quickly record completed work, service exceptions such as bins not out, contamination, blocked access to streets/premises at the touch of a button. This is relayed straight to the CRM and depot. Less paper – less delays – instant information.


The heart of effective teamwork is communication, pre-set and ad hoc messages can be sent between the crews from the In Cab computer to the back office team and vice versa. There is also a silent SOS alarm to alert the back office team in case of an emergency

Vehicle Checks

Ensure that your start of day and end of day vehicle safety inspections are completed by electronically recording minor and major defects and logging rectification times. You can also record start and end of day mileage readings.

Bin Deliveries

Collective manages all aspects of requests for new and additional bins, including the removal of unwanted or surplus bins and the repair or replacement of damaged bins.

Requests can be keyed directly into Collective as Service Requests, or entered electronically by an external CRM system or web form.

The deliveries are confirmed either using the handheld devices or in the back-office. Collective produces a paper delivery note to allow users to see their workload and load the vehicle with the appropriate stock.Alternatively this can be generated using the Bin Delivery Job Sheet report.

Food Hygiene

Food Hygiene Ratings are an essential public safety service but with hundreds of different food outlets and constant changes in business use it can be difficult to maintain an efficient inspections regime. Collective makes it easy, with automated inspection schedules, mobile data capture and document management.

Manage and optimise inspection schedules automatically with Collective and ensure that your Food Safety Officers and Environmental Health Officers spend less time on paperwork and more time on premises.

Collective brings together all the major functions of food hygiene management, including:

  • continuous prioritisation of inspections and follow-up actions, ensuring FSO's and EHO's work to optimised schedules
  • automated production and management of Hygiene Improvement Notices and Emergency Prohibition Notices
  • appeals management and "right to reply" processes
  • supported by an open API for integration with your other business systems
