Waste management teams spend several hours each week emptying bins. Although it’s important that teams empty bins in a timely manner, many times it happens whether they need it or not. This is inefficient and wastes a lot of time and money.
Only Collect the Bins That Need It!
The current method followed by most waste management teams involves emptying all bins on a set schedule. This is typically done once or twice per day. Each bin gets visited whether it needs it or not if it’s on the route. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know if it’s full unless the collector actually looks inside.
Mint Controls’ Fill Sensors are different. Our Fill Sensors attach to any bin. They monitor fill level every hour and send the data collected directly to the waste management team. The user can quickly and easily view the status of multiple bins at any time, from any device that connects to the Internet. With our solution, waste management teams know instantly if and when bins require attention. They know which bins are full and which bins they can skip. This frees up time and money and makes waste collection more efficient.
Mint Controls’ Fill Sensors prevent litter bins from overflowing. They eliminate unnecessary pickups and reduce traffic in public spaces. This is important to most cities as traffic is often a top concern for residents. Less pickups means less waste management trucks blocking roadways and contributing to traffic.
By ensuring waste management teams pick up waste bins when needed, cities can reduce the amount of litter in city spaces. Eliminating overflowing bins also keeps waste out of storm drains, where it can create problems for wildlife which can become entangled or accidentally consume trash.
