AfvalRIS becomes the planning and container management system of HMS


Hague Environmental Services (HMS – Haagse Milieu Services) are going to use AfvalRIS. The solution is going to become the planning and container management system of HMS. The organization opts for the smart solution of GMT, because they understand the importance of a good planning and container management system; for now and in the future.


AfvalRIS is a software solution for professional cleaning services. The software offers, amongst others, possibilities for the integration of mobile devices, automation of recycling centres, apps, internet solutions, planning, managing underground containers and route optimization.


‘HMS was looking for a reliable planning module for the collection of household waste, the managing of underground containers and the collection of bulky household waste. We wanted a system that contained everything, including a waste collection calendar. AfvalRIS proved to be a perfect fit in this picture’, says account manager Menno Koper.


Because the number of underground containers is increasing in The Hague, HMS finds it important to organize the management of these containers properly. ‘AfvalRIS is capable of managing underground containers of different suppliers (and hence often with various systems). In addition, the solution of GMT can communicate with all other existing systems within HMS.’


‘The implementation will take place in phases,’ according to Koper. ‘We expect that the first test for the scheduling module will be done in September 2014 so that the module can go live in the beginning of October 2014. We will round off Phase 2 at the end of 2014. The intention is then that the container management module will be fully operational.’ 


Hague Environmental Services (HMS) is a public-private cooperation between Van Gansewinkel - Public Services and the Municipality of The Hague. HMS takes care of the collection of household waste, garden waste, bulky household waste, glass, paper and textiles within the municipality of The Hague and is responsible for the operation of three waste transfer stations, pest control and gritting during the winter.
