Cities and waste management companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on waste management. Unfortunately, much of this cost is wasted. Currently, waste management picks up all residential waste bins, whether they are full or not. This wastes a significant amount of time and money. It’s clear that cities and waste management companies require a better solution.
Fill Sensors Monitor Fill Level of Waste Bins and Dumpsters
Mint Controls’ Fill Sensors provide a cost-effective solution for waste management teams and cities looking to reduce the amount of time and money spent on waste management. The Fill Sensor retrofits to traditional waste bins and continuously monitors the level of waste. The Fill Sensor communicates information hourly through Mint Controls’ easy-to-use Software.
Waste management teams and Smart City leaders can access the information provided by Mint Controls’ Fill Sensors at any time from any device that connects to the Internet. Waste management teams can use this information to plan their pick-up route based on actual usage. With time saved, waste management teams can add more neighborhoods to their daily pick-up schedule.
In addition to monitoring waste, Mint Controls’ Fill Sensor also monitors temperature inside the bin. The Fill Sensor lets waste management teams know the moment it detects dangerous temperatures. This can be especially beneficial during the hot summer months in areas where trash fires are common.
The Fill Sensor also monitors tilt. The Sensor knows if someone has left the lid open or knocked the bin over. With configuration, the Fill Sensor can send notification to both waste management and the homeowner the moment it detects a problem. This helps prevent problems caused by excessive temperatures, cigarettes or cigars thrown in the bin, and bins tipped over.
