Intelligent is a word that most people would not use to describe waste bins.
With a cloud-based software, built-in sensors generating real-time data feed, and remote access capability, Sellers Containers’ revolutionary waste bins prove intelligent is just one way to describe them.
The SolarStreetBinTM and the PEL Waste Reduction Equipment IoT Bin are innovative products transforming the way waste collection is done.
Here are 8 ways these intelligent waste bins are changing the waste management landscape:
1) Get up to 10x increased litter capacity.
SolarStreetBinTM offers up to 10x more litter holding capacity, thanks to its solar-powered motorised compaction system. Once SolarStreetBinTM reaches full capacity, it automatically compresses the litter inside to make way for more. SolarStreetBin’s increased capacity reduces the number of visits required to service it, leading to higher efficiency and smarter operations.
2) Maximise eco-friendly energy sources available.
SolarStreetBinTM has an on-board solar panel, while the non-compacting IoT waste bin is self-powered by a built-in battery. These eco-friendly energy sources power integrated bin-fill sensors which indicate when the bins need to be emptied.
3) Monitor waste bins real-time, 24/7.
The wireless bin-fill sensors on-board the SolarStreetBinTM and IoT bin send real-time updates to a cloud-based software, which then sends out notifications – green, amber and red status alerts – to personnel via emails or SMS.
The bin-fill sensors allow real-time monitoring and proactive management of the waste bins, preventing cases of overflowing bins, emergency servicing, and costly clean-ups and municipality fines.
4) Remotely access data & track your entire fleet.
BriteBinTM is a cloud-based data management software that can be remotely accessed via PC, smartphone or tablet. Enabled by a local telecommunications network, BriteBinTM works seamlessly with the bin-fill sensors to notify key personnel and facilitate bin servicing.
BriteBinTM collects information from each bin to give a complete overview of the bins’ respective locations and litter levels, allowing users to immediately see the individual status of all bins in their fleet.
5) Find the most efficient collection routes effortlessly.
BriteBinTM can generate location maps and collection routes for only the bins that need servicing, thus improving the waste collection process while reducing costs, saving time, and minimising associated road traffic emissions.
Aside from active route mapping, BriteBinTM also enables internal communications, driver tracking, and route monitoring.
6) Generate cost savings with their extreme durability and long life.
SolarStreetBinTM and IoT bin are made from first-rate recycled Zentec galvanised steel, allowing them to withstand even the most extreme and demanding applications. The galvanised steel is primed and then reinforced by heavy-duty heat-cured polyester TGIC powder-coat topcoat, giving the bins superior corrosion resistance from harsh environmental factors such as tree sap, salt air and animal excrement.
SolarStreetBinTM and IoT bin also have outstanding weather resistance, as proven by rigorous weather testing in Norway and Dubai, UAE, which registered ambient temperatures of -40°C and +55°C, respectively.
Their robust build reduces the need for maintenance and servicing, while ensuring long life and generating cost savings in the long run.
7) Have peace of mind with these responsive safety and security features.
Both products comply with CE standards and the health and safety requirements mandated by the European Commission’s Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
The litter flap of SolarStreetBinTM is equipped with three safety mechanisms that lock the flap to prevent users from accessing the bin once compaction begins, thus minimising the risk of accidents and injuries.
8) Analyse and enhance your waste collection strategy.
BriteBinTM includes reporting functions such as KPI reports, performance analysis, collection lists, estimated intervals between collections, and reporting at individual bin and bin fleet levels.
These reports give organisations a comprehensive overview of their operations and enable them to resolve inefficiencies and enhance their overall performance. With fully customisable features, BriteBinTM can meet the unique and changing requirements of small- to large-scale organisations.
