How mobile technology helps waste management business

Take a look at this AT&T video about a young couple in North Carolina. Noah and his wife Sarah started a company is in 2013. They collect food waste from restaurants, hotels, schools, corporate cafeterias, and grocery stores in the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill area and divert it to a composting facility in Goldston.

That company creates a natural soil amendment and sells it to farmers, landscaping companies, and garden centers. Food FWD gets paid to haul the food scraps away and pays the composting facility to dump materials there.

The whole operation keeps food waste out of landfills, where it would generate greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change, and diverts it into a product that helps farmers and gardeners grow crops with fewer chemicals and pesticides.

Noah uses his 2-in-1 tablet-laptop with QuickBooks® for invoicing customers. The Marshes share company files through Dropbox and sometimes use Skype or GoToMeeting to collaborate with clients such as restaurant owners.
