Unfortunately, trash bins are picked up based on static collection schedules, which means bins are emptied when they too or too late causing operational inefficiency. When too late, overflowing containers lead to illegal dumping following additional cleaning and collection costs. Too early, Containers are empty at the time of pickup wasting time, resources and money.
We have built a state-of-the-art IoT fill-level device, which can measure the fill-level of any type of trash in any type bin and 3D map the waste volume. This unique device has 10+ years of battery lifetime, which is quite revolutionary for its kind - and earns itself back after just 3 months of the subscription cost. The future of waste collection is going to be based on the data from these devices, no technology yet supports such advanced routing planning engine, which is what we are building. By embedding machine learning into the route planning we can automate trash pickups completely and remove all the hassles relating to inefficient emptyings of empty bins and overflowing disasters.
WasteHero devices monitor activity, including bin fullness, temperature and fill rates, to identify waste generation patterns. Data from bins are collected on the company's web-based platform, which produces real-time analysis for city officials to visualize the fullness of every trash bin simultaneously and deploy haulers only when needed.
WasteHero devices monitor activity, including bin fullness, temperature and fill rates, to identify waste generation patterns. Data from bins are used for Fleet Management and Intelligent Routing harnessing AI and machine learning.
WasteHero Fleet Management and Intelligent Routing harness AI and machine learning to present reports containing actionable insights that help waste management officials identify areas in need and track the efficiency of improvements over time. The insights can help mitigate container overflow, reduce the number of overall collections, guide bin placement and optimize operational resources.
