Rubicon announces second municipal partnership with Santa Fe, NM

This is the tech company’s second municipal partnership after a similar deal was announced with Atlanta in December. Last month, Rubicon CEO Nate Morris told Waste Dive that he sees data collection as a key part of the company’s model and emphasized the importance of understanding how materials are moving on a larger scale. Through a partnership with Trucost the company has the ability to provide more in-depth analysis of how material diversion and optimized routing relate to greenhouse gas emissions. As Santa Fe works toward a goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2040, this data will be of particular interest when it comes to the 29,300 residential and 2,500 commercial customers that the city services. The city is currently in the midst of rolling out new recycling carts, with grant assistance from The Recycling Partnership, and has invested in seven new automated trucks. Following the lead of multiple other cities, Santa Fe has also stopped collecting glass in its curbside program.
