"All new Advanced Disposal route trucks have the Global Sensor backing systems installed at the manufacturer. More than 20% of the current fleet has been or are in the process of being retrofitted with backing sensors now. Backing sensors are placed on the rear of trucks and they sense when any object or person comes within 6 feet of the truck. Once the sensor detects this object, the brakes are automatically applied. Our trucks will automatically brake before backing into a car, mailbox, tree, bicyclist, or any other objects. Backing sensors are proven to be amazingly effective with over 80% reduction in backing accident frequency, of accidents in our industry. Advanced Disposal is proud to partner with Global Sensor Systems Inc., which manufactures our backing sensors. While this safety equipment does increase the cost of doing business, we believe that the investment to prevent accidents is vital. We encourage others in the industry to follow our lead in making our business, as well as our communities safer for everyone."
