Finnish company Enevo provides waste management companies and organizations with a service for cutting costs by optimizing waste collection logistics.
Their web-based system ONe Collect uses wireless sensors placed in trash cans to monitor how full each one is, and produces the best routes and schedules for pick-ups. The smart wireless fill level sensors can be quickly and easily installed in any trash can.
The system helps determine when waste containers need to be emptied, so instead of picking up half-empty or overfull containers, they are collected exactly when needed. This provides direct cost savings and an improved quality of service.
The system can save up to 40% in waste collection costs by calculating optimal routes and schedules for fleets based on real-time monitoring of each container.
