  • Waste monitoring offers up-to-date information and long-term records of waste separation quality for inhabitants and customers

WASTE COLLECTION QUALITY UNDER CONTROL

Both municipalities and commercial customers are paying for waste collection. They expect that containers will be emptied at the frequency they pay for. However, they have no way of verifying the quality of the service they pay for. By using waste monitoring, customers can verify whether they are actually receiving the service being paid for.

IMPROVED QUALITY OF SEPARATED WASTE

When containers are empty, people perceive cleanliness and order around them as the norm and take a more responsible approach to waste separation. When containers are filled to the brim with household waste, people are less motivated to sort their waste in a responsible manner and will often dispose of the waste next to the container or in a recycling bin for plastic or paper, thus degrading the secondary raw material.

Waste monitoring and timely waste collection can ensure that empty waste containers are available for each commodity, thus preventing secondary raw material degradation.

IMPROVED EFFICIENCY IN UTILISING FUNDS

Today we collect containers, not waste. The waste collection companies must go to a location and empty even the empty containers. They use more trucks and people than are actually necessary for the quantity of waste distributed across the city and their customers. By using waste monitoring, the waste collection company can optimise its collection route and send a truck and team of the right size for the given quantity of waste – thus reducing its direct costs.

IMPROVED TRAFFIC FLOW AND LOWER NOISE EMISSIONS IN CITIES

Waste transport in cities complicates the on-going traffic situation. Garbage trucks often block the roads. The city of London has to reserve 2 hours early in the morning for waste collection so that traffic is not obstructed. The city of Prague collects waste only at night in some parts of the city, which leads to increased noise levels when most people are trying to sleep – causing discomfort and decreasing people’s satisfaction with municipal services. The dump truck is at its noisiest when waste containers are being emptied and the truck has to rev up to maintain hydraulic pressure as the waste falls into the truck.

Waste monitoring provides information on the locations where waste collection is actually necessary. Because waste is collected only in places where it’s necessary, the driver is able to navigate by the optimal route calculated by the Sensoneo application. This makes the resulting routes much faster and efficient, which in turn improves traffic flow in cities as well as the comfort of their inhabitants, who are not exposed to needless excessive noise.

IMPROVED SERVICES FOR CITIZENS, BUSINESSES, AND TOURISTS

Citizens, businesses, and tourists alike are sensitive to the cleanliness of their surroundings. Overflowing waste containers and the secondary mess around them decrease the level of satisfaction with municipal services. Waste monitoring and timely waste collection eliminates the negative impact of overflowing waste containers on citizens, businesses, and tourists.
