Bin Sensors: Revolutionize Your Waste Management For The Better

The number of people residing in cities is increasing drastically with each passing day. With that, the need for waste containers at every corner is also growing exponentially. Due to this immense rise in waste production, many developed and under-developed countries alike are having difficulty managing the millions of tons of garbage their citizens produce each year. Thanks to the revolutionary bin sensor technology, however, this no longer has to be the case. With the help of bin sensors, you can bring your waste collection process under control!

Why use bin sensors?

In the traditional method of waste collection, a garbage truck follows a predetermined route around the city to collect the trash, regardless of its fullness levels. But by doing so, this garbage truck costs its company a lot more money than necessary. The driver spends hours each day stopping and collecting half-full containers. Their unnecessary ventures throughout the city cause excess fuel consumption -and higher greenhouse-gas emissions as a result. This may end up in the company needing more trucks and manpower to complete the mission at hand. 

Another consequence of improper waste management is that since the drivers are not aware of the fullness levels of the waste containers, they have to stop at each and every container they are assigned to. This may lead to them spending too much time -in traffic or while collecting the trash- on half-filled containers that they may not get to pick up the ones that are actually in need of attention. In this case, the full containers may overflow and pollute the streets (in terms of visual, odor, and water pollution). This would be very dangerous for the people as well as the animals that live there.

Why use bin sensors?

If someone switched to sensor based waste management, however, they would be able to monitor which waste container is full and which one is not, thus be able to create an optimized route for their garbage truck drivers. This would allow them to reduce the unnecessary time, fuel, manpower, truck, and all other resources they waste while going to unfilled containers. Furthermore, because the truck drivers can now know which container is in more urgent need of collecting, they can go there and eliminate the possibility of the garbage spilling onto the streets; hence preventing pollution caused by improper waste management before it even begins.
