Smart Waste Management
Mountains of rubbish can cause problems to waste management operations, especially during the warm season or when there are big events in cities. Waste bins that are overfilled annoy and upset the citizens. How to eliminate piles of rubbish and overfilled waste bins? This is where Smart Waste Management comes in.
We put sensors inside the containers to measure fill levels on an hourly basis. A dashboard helps to visualize the operations. Drivers receive a tablet with an integrated application to view the optimized route. Sensor longevity is guaranteed due to small power consumption. With this simple solution, cities or companies can save up to 50% of the costs related to waste logistics.
From challenges to opportunities
Inneficient collection journeys
Due to missing information on the fill level of containers, routes are planned using historical values. This can lead to inefficient journeys with below-par utilization and also create additional burdens to the vehicle fleet, personnel and urban traffic volume.
Fill level sensors combined with software ensure better resource allocation of containers, vehicles and personnel. Sensors are made of durable plastic (protection class IP67) and can measure the fill level of containers with a depth of up to 5 m. With this solution, waste collection companies can save up to 50% of logistics costs.
Overfilled waste bins are a common hazard in cities reducing the quality of life and creating an eyesore for citizens and visitors alike. Additionally, a manual and labour intense clean-up of the containers and the surrounding area is required.
Smart waste management can be used all over Europe including remote areas that require irregular collection. The fill level sensor is easy to install. The software and firmware are continuously being developed. In addition, depending on the sensor model, many other functions, such as GPS or temperature measurement are possible.
