AMCS CEO, Jimmy Martin: “The waste and recycling industry is going through a massive transition. Organisations in residential, commercial, industrial waste collection and recycling, are re-positioning themselves in the growing, more circular economy. These organizations also have an increasing appetite to digitalise their business and automate business processes. It requires software companies like AMCS, with a certain scale, to be able to make the investments needed to support this transformation on a global scale.
