Keter’s distinct technology and service model is supported with an expansive coverage area of smart compactors and container-monitoring hardware that provide accurate, real-time data to customers and support Keter in maximizing service quality and efficiency.”

BGL notes that Keter’s proprietary technology includes a portal that aggregates financial and operating data that provides customers with insight into program performance to help companies achieve their sustainability goals.
