Santa Fe has enlisted tech startup Rubicon Global to figure out what its residents toss in the trash, recycle or send to compost.

Using data gathered by garbage collectors and trucks on their normal routes, Rubicon helps municipalities to quantify their trash, and pinpoint neighborhoods for improvement when they clearly need more education or different waste management services.

Funded by Nima Capital and a number of high-profile angel investors including actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio, Rubicon Global first generated a buzz as theUber of garbage.” It promised to make garbage pick-ups available on-demand not just at pre-scheduled times.

In its early days, Rubicon generated revenue by helping businesses like restaurant chains or hospitals to divert waste from landfills and instead send it to be recycled or used elsewhere.

Head of public policy at Rubicon, Michael Allegretti, said the company’s app asks garbage collectors to submit notes about anything unusual on a given job.

Its expansion into Santa Fe marks the first time Rubicon Global has struck municipal-level contract outside of its hometown of Atlanta, CEO Nate Morris said.

Asked if Rubicon is installing new sensors, or robotic arms, into the fleets of trucks it works with, Morris said not yet.
