- One Plus Corp.
One Plus Corp. introduces a new technology allowing malls to profit from trash. The TRASHPASS system charges tenants based on their actual waste disposal. It also locks out unauthorized users, does the accounting and can even automatically contact the hauler to order its own compactor container pickup. Alternatively, instead of paying the hauler, mall management can be paid by the hauler for contract rights. Chicago (312) 943-1800; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
