ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 21, 2021 Waste Harmonics, a national managed waste service provider, has acquired Contelligent, a global leader in intelligent container monitoring solutions and analytics. Waste Harmonics’ proprietary technology, iWaste, is a secure, cloud-based dashboard that provides real-time fullness status, activity data and equipment health.
