Their monitoring system had to be updated and brought to the point of execution and an Operational Control Centre (OCC) was established producing online and on time information that permitted the monitoring of the collection process and in order to identify and correct operational problems and unexpected situations on time to minimize the impact on the operational efficiency and improve the service levels.

Over 700 routes where redesigned and updated and more than 400 drivers were trained on the new procedures and their leadership roles.
