Dorset Council

Dorset Council have used Collective since 2018 and have extended the system to include commercial waste and bin weighing.

For Dorset Council

Dorset Council service a large rural county with 9 depots & 1 central customer contact centre. The old ways of working were proving inefficient, time consuming, open to error and were felt to be holding back the trade service from growing.

The contract with Dorset Council (formerly Dorset Waste Partnership) commenced in March 2018 and initially covered the supply of the Collective system to manage Dorset’s Garden Waste and Trade Waste operations.

The Solution

Matthew Boulter, Commercial Services Manager, states:

“Collective provided a solution to receiving real time collection information and presented an opportunity to remove manual processes through automation and integration with other council systems. We now have a fully integrated system which actively links and works with other council systems”
