Push to Talk Two Way Radios for Refuse Collection Companies

Streamlined operations are essential to the success of every refuse collection company. One of the key aspects to achieving optimal efficiency for refuse collection companies is good communication and the right communication devices. Push to talk two-way radios are the best and simplest way to increase efficiency, improve productivity, and increase the safety of your employees.

Below, we’ll go over a few reasons PTT two-way radios can help your refuse collection company.

Improves oversight

 PTT two-way radios allow you to have instant communication with any workers in the field. Therefore, they can easily check in on their status, communicate their location and progress, and update you regularly to keep you in the loop and on top of all of your employees.

 Reduces background noise

 Also, we understand that things can get loud on the job at a refuse collection company. This is not a problem with PTT two-way radios. All of our radios come with a noise-cancellation feature that allows for clear communication on both ends so that messages can also be received and sent without issue.

Safety and emergency response

 Emergencies can happen at any business, especially one where employees are working outside in variable conditions and lifting heavy bags and bins. That’s why it’s essential to go the extra mile and ensure their safety and improve emergency response time if anything does happen. PTT two-way radios allow workers to instantly communicate the emergency and the GPS tracker provides their exact location so that emergency medical assistance can get there as soon as possible.

 Increases accountability

 When you manage a company like a refuse collection company where employees are out working in the field, there can be issues with accountability. Workers may take it upon themselves to take more breaks or pit stops for snacks, or maybe even run an errand on the clock. While all employers hope that this never happens, it is a reality of any job with low accountability.

PTT two-way radios have a GPS tracking feature. This lets you track the location of your workers while they’re out in the field in real time. So if anybody does go off route or isn’t at the job site, you can easily check in with them and correct the situation. Plus, if employees know their location is being tracked, they’ll have more accountability and will be less likely to break the rules.


With all of the benefits that PTT two-way radios provide, you may be surprised to learn that they are also an affordable option. They have low start-up costs and can even save you money when compared to other communication devices. It is a much better option than outfitting employees with mobile phones, and significantly cheaper too.
