  • The City of Washington D.C. Solid Waste Management Administration (SWMA) currently uses the ServTrakand FieldTrak modules of Trakster for its day-to-day customer services and field operations work. There are currently more than 80 users of the Trakster system within SWMA.  “Fieldtrak supports our entire operations - giving us critical employee & route performance data when we need it."  Thomas Henderson, Administrator
