Problem: Waste Management. There is a lack of efficiency and transparency in waste management. Not knowing how full the bins are make it difficult to maximize efficiency. When the bins aren’t full when collected, it leads to additional emissions and extra trips. When the bins have been full before the scheduled pick up, it causes social problems such as overflow of waste on the streets.
Bratislava is implementing a large-scale smart waste digitalization program using Sensoneo. This will realize savings on waste collection related to truck mileage, emissions, and prevention of damages related to overfilled containers.
Will be implemented in stages until April 2022
digitalization of 85,000 containers and installation of 1,753 Sensoneo sensors to monitor all containers for glass waste and underground bins across the city
Will also deploy 92 Sensoneo WatchDog devices on all waste collection vehicles to automatically digitalize the waste collection process and automatically verify pick-ups
Flexible waste collection powered by Sensoneo’s Route Optimization and the testing of prototypes facilitating the introduction of “pay-as-you-sort“ models and recognizing fill-levels of containers during pick-up.
Glass waste is particularly troublesome due to its irregular filling cycle. Using Sensoneo’s technology, the city can avoid unnecessary pickups.
