Problem Solver Questions & Answers

Manage Waste Wisely


Managing trash and recycle collection can be time-consuming, and unpredictable traffic patterns on city streets and in public parks can make it even more challenging. Modernizing your waste management system with wireless sensors is a smart way to maximize efficiency.

Q: How can we simplify waste and recyclable collection?

A: Wireless sensors can monitor the fill levels and weights of containers, allowing you to know when waste needs to be collected. Weight sensors can measure the weight within 3 pounds, providing current and historical information on trash and recycling amounts so you can measure and improve landfill diversion.

Checking on your containers online is simple, and you can receive notifications on your smartphone or tablet, letting you know when a certain fill level has been reached, or alerting you about rummaging and irregular spikes in activity.

Using a smart waste management system like this will save resources and collection expenses, as you'll be able to send staff when and where they're needed, reducing your fuel costs and carbon footprint.

Q: We're concerned about pests. Is there a way to do a better job of taking care of rodents in the area?

A: Smart technology incorporated into your waste receptacles can look for specific patterns in the measurements it records that indicate rodent movement within the container. This data can help you discover problem areas where rodent populations are high, allowing you to determine contributing factors in the surrounding area, like discarded foods, overflowing dumpsters and more. You can use this data to help establish an abatement initiative, and over time, the data will help measure your success.

Q: How else can wireless sensors help?

A: Wireless sensors with onboard GPS can provide the location of your receptacles, which can be communicated automatically to any device. This can save time and money when you need to relocate containers for special events, or if you need to adjust to periods of heavy traffic.
