    Collections: COLLECTION, DISPOSAL


    THE PROBLEM

    90% of the world’s waste is collected at the wrong time. When it's picked-up too late, overflowing containers lead to waste in nature. When waste is collected too early, empty waste bins waste time and collection resources. Optimizing the waste collection time, can increase waste collection rates and reduce litter, while also reducing collection costs.

     

    THE SOLUTION

    Smart waste management is revolutionizing an industry facing a worldwide struggle to reduce costs while keeping our cities cleaner. An increasing number of people around the globe are realizing that the status quo is no longer acceptable and that the best solution is to develop and maintain smart waste management. Regardless of whether you represent a whole city, an organization, or a waste operator, the benefits from focusing on smart waste management are undeniable.

    The key benefit of the Nordsense smart waste management solution is cost savings through improved route optimization, resource handling and monitoring. Your increase in efficiency will not only save money, but also improve overall workflow, as well as reducing your carbon footprint. Here's how it works:

    1. Waste containers are equipped with a small sensor that measures the fill levels as well as a variety of other data points. The small small footprint and sophisticated technology of our sensors allows them to be placed in any type of container, regardless of their shape, size or contents.
    2. Log on to our user-friendly platform from any Internet connected device to monitor in real time the exact waste bins that need servicing. The platform also allows users to generate efficient, on-demand route maps that are optimized for the specific containers that need to be emptied.
    3. By using any Internet connected smartphone or tablet, a driver logs on to Nordsense to receives their daily work schedule. Their daily route will include detailed navigation with turn-by-turn instructions and spoken directions, which are all available in multiple languages.
