Bin Sensors for Waste Management

In 2018, The World Bank pushed the emergency button by declaring that global waste production is expected to grow by 70 percent by 2050. If consumption and other activities generating waste maintain their rising trend, global waste production will increase to 3.40 billion tonnes in 25 years.

With the increase in waste production, the process of its collection becomes a crucial part of waste management. If we part the waste collection operation, the first step will be collecting the bins. So, how can we ease the operations and transform the traditional containers into smart bins?

Up the Waste Collection Game With Bin Sensors 

At the first step of waste collecting operations, the trash bins are collected. Operation managers part the fleet into different areas, and every part has its containers. But what are the challenges in this operation?

Firstly, the fleets are going around circles during the operation hours because they do not know how full the bins are. Thus, resulting in a waste of fuel, human resources, and time. At this moment, the bin sensors step in.

Bin sensors are integrated with the Asset Management software. Sensors are attached to the trash bins. During the operations, bin sensors give direct live data of full levels, locations, and temperatures. With the data coming from the sensors, managers can track the full level status; this way trucks will not visit half full bins, resulting in fuel, energy, and resource savings. 

Also, the location of the bins can be tracked with the Fill Level Sensors. Without the location information, some bins can be uncollected. This error will not only cause pollution, but it will also affect further schedules of operations. Operation managers can use location data in an efficient route plan this way; no bins will be missed during the procedure.

How Digital Asset Management Benefits Waste Operations?

With the use of digital asset management systems, waste operation managers will track and plan the operations effectively. For example, with a temperature tracking system, the sensors will warn of an unwanted temperature increase. This will prevent potential explosions that might cause harm to the environment and loss of assets. Additionally, sensors can:

  • Help operate on a budget.
  • Save financial resources.
  • Optimize operation levels.
  • Influence route plans.

In other words, sensors will provide operations with access to resources. With these resources, the operations will not only increase in number, but they will increase in an efficient way. 

Lastly, the comfort of virtually tracking your garbage bins is a big plus. Imagine reducing your stress level, knowing that if there is a problem, you will get notified immediately. If the managers want to track the bins or locate them, they will be able to do it with a click of a button. 

Fill Level Sensor: Achieve The Next Level

Fill level sensor is the best smart bin solution to up your waste collection game to the next level! It is one of our best hardware solutions that contain multiple answers. The sensors are water-resistant; they can survive difficult conditions and still transfer the data accurately and on time.

With the help of asset management software, the data collected is easily communicated to the Evreka Servers utilizing GSM, NB-loT, Lora systems. With the Fill Level Sensor, the data of:

  • Bin full rates
  • Locations
  • Temperatures can be detected.

In case of an unexpected situation, the operation owners will be alarmed simultaneously. To summarize, the fill level sensor will not only save you resources but will also gather you with high-tech waste management solutions
