Smart Bins

M2M technology gives councils complete visibility of the rate at which public bins are filling. This allows them to plan collection routes effectively, and the data can be used to assess the need for additional bins.

When collection day arrives, council employees are able to identify bins that are over 50% full – and this information is automatically translated into a route map on the collection driver's GPS. This means the driver receives an optimised route plan and no longer wastes time on unnecessary collections.
