Westminster City Council, GB incorporates ArcGIS into procurement process for waste collection

City officials sought a data-driven method for procuring cost-effective recycling and disposal services. The Waste Services and GIS teams produced a GIS map with GPS data from the city's waste collection vehicles. This map showed a 35-minute drive-time zone from the city center based on real-world drive times and routes. Westminster prioritizes tenders from waste management companies with sites in this zone, thus reducing personnel and fuel costs paid by public funds.
