In the beginning of 2016, the first 100 Nordsense Pods were installed in street bins in different areas of Copenhagen, with varying activity levels. The installation was done to build a baseline on the waste service optimization potential. It quickly became evident that in order to achieve the waste collection efficiency for the city, the drivers needed to empty bins based on demand, with dynamic addition of the bins to the collection schedules. Project findings revealed that 40% of emptied bins contain less than 25% of waste capacity and 90% of bins are not full when they are emptied.
