Monitoring WEEE Bins

“Digital tools from Sensoneo make everyday management easier and records transparent.” Sarka Kohakova, Logistics Manager at Asekol CZ

ASEKOL a.s. is a non-profit company that organizes a nationwide take-back system for electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in the Czech republic. It provides collection, transport, and recycling of worn-out and obsolete EEE, including funding for the entire system. ASEKOL A.S. is a proud member of the Publicly Beneficial Services Association and WEEE Forum, a European association of compliance schemes, based in Brussels.

ASEKOL a.s. in numbers:
36 000 tonnes of EEE waste collected in 2019
20 756 collection points set up across 78,865 km²
3 910 containers managing remotely

ASEKOL A.S. currently manages 3 910 stationary containers throughout the Czech Republic. Due to the high number of containerssignificant distances between them, and the fact that ASEKOL has several transport companies contracted in different regions, the company was searching for a suitable solution that would enable centralized monitoring of the containers and make the collection process smoother and better organized.

The cooperation with ASEKOL A.S. began back in 2016 when as part of a pilot project, we installed 50 Sensoneo Smart Sensors in their WEEE bins. The specific requirement to mount (attach) the sensor in the container started the in-house development of a special mounting assembly, that let ASEKOL a.s take advantage of the full functionality of the Sensoneo Smart Sensors and obtain precise information about the monitored containers.

Satisfaction with the results later led to the project expanding several times until it reached a large scale. Currently, Asekol uses nearly 1000 Sensoneo sensors in bins located across Czech republic. The data from sensors significantly help the company to optimize the entire method of collecting and transporting electronic waste.
