Recycling Facilities

In order to meet various state and local regulations designed to curb the theft of metal, scrap metal yards and recycling facilities are required to document the identity of the individuals attempting to sell materials. An ID scanner can help you manage customer relations.

Municipal Solid Waste Landfill

Each individual attempting to dump solid waste at a landfill is required to provide a certain amount of information as well. This information also varies by location but usually includes the address of the individual to ensure that they are a town resident and the amount and type of waste because of the limits that exist at each landfill.

IDVisor Sentry

The IDVisor Sentry is a driver’s license scanning software package with the ability to capture driver license information, images of the driver license, images of the cardholder from a webcam, and record transactional details like the type and amount of waste.
