Our solution enables waste managers to…

Better deal with staff shortages


The HGV driver shortage has affected many local authorities and waste management companies, with drivers switching to driving lorries instead. Using bin fill levels to prioritise collection routes can help waste managers deal with reduced staff numbers.

Improving collection efficiency

Support sustainability goals by reducing miles travelled


Organisations all over the UK are taking action to meet specific sustainability targets. Often, one of these targets is to reduce the number of miles driven, therefore reducing CO2 and methane emissions. By avoiding visiting empty bins, vehicle mileage can be significantly reduced.

Quickly identify potential incidents of people, animals or fires in bins


As well as monitoring bin fill levels, our sensors also detect the container's internal temperature, which can be used to indicate people, animals or potential fires inside the bin. Custom alerts can be set up to trigger instant alerts when these particular conditions are detected.

Help protect the local environment


When bins are overflowing, the rubbish can be blown into hedges, parks, fields or even the sea. This creates hazards for local wildlife and leads to environmental pollution. By ensuring bins are emptied before they overflow, or receiving notifications when lids have been left open, damage to the local environment can be significantly reduced.

Managing bins on Bournemouth beaches

Monitor all types of containers and bins


Our sensors have been designed to be adapted to any bin type, including wheelie bins, street bins, front loader bins and more. Fitting sensors to general and recycling bins allow for comparison in usage and how this usage changes over time or between locations. This can then help direct policy change.

Our work with Biffa & Northern Rail

Track levels of recycling and general bin usage


Fitting sensors to general waste bins and recycling bins allows for usage comparisons over time or between different locations. We can also supply keyring fobs to identify and compare bin usage by commercial clients.
