netBin Smart Waste Management

Textile Bins

Charity textile bins collect donated clothing at most recycling points, the large metal containers are often seen overflowing with bags of donations piled up against the banks. The filling patterns of clothing bins are typically sporadic and are difficult to predict with certainty. The collection of these binss is expensive so as a preference they are collected once assumed to be full. Consequently faster filling sites will have overflowing bins for many days before collection missing out on significant amount of donations while they full.

Use the netBin textile fill level monitoring system and:

  • Reduce overflowing bins
  • Reduce theft with nLok
  • Only empty bins that need to be emptied
  • Stop unnecessary journeys to empty bins
  • Quantify the amount of clothing in bin network at any time
  • Save fuel
  • Save time
  • Detect bank theft with the GPS option

Litter bins traditionally are over emptied to ensure that public spaces remain clean, pleasant and safe for pedestrians. Using our litter bin monitoring system will reduce the number of unnecessary empties per day to save time and money. As litter bins filling pattern directly correlates to the footfall at any time of the day, netBin’s historical analysis will enable you to understand what times of day require most attention.trash can monitoring

Underground Bins

Underground bins provide impressive storage capacities with very little visual impact to the surrounding community, however with installation, collection and maintenance costs at the premium end of the market there are significant savings possible from detecting fill levels. Using our fill level monitoring system will reduce the number of unnecessary empties per month to save time, money and resources. As underground bins filling patterns are more difficult to follow visually on site, netBin HUB software will enable you to react to fill levels being reported. Using netBin ANALYSER you will can conduct powerful analysis on the data recovered. netBin underground bin monitoring

Cornerstone’s Monitoring RevolutionCornerstone Donation bins monitored by netBin

After comparing collected base line data against 6 months of using netBin technology Cornerstone Recovery has been able to significantly reduce unnecessary collections.

Considering a sample of 20 textile bins collection costs were reduced by a minimum of $84 a day which would reflect a saving of $30,726 per year for just 20 bins. The improved productivity and decreased site visits mean that this system has been a great success and is now due to expand.

  • Total Cost Savings on sample of 20:
  • Considering Total estimated cost savings per day = $84
  • Total estimated cost savings per year = $30,726
  • Improved Productivity – Decrease in site visits
  • Reduction in Monthly Visits: 62.0
  • Reduction in Daily Visits: 2.2

Macao Government expands netBin system for 5th time!

The netBin solution has been widely deployed across Macao by the local Government with a 5th expansion due for early 2020. Currently over 600 nPods monitor waste houses and known waste dumping zones.

netBin is relied upon 100% for monitoring and requesting collections for waste houses and when waste has been dumped illegally. Each Waste house could have up to 6 nPods monitoring the internal open top bins, when waste levels exceed configurable limits the collection team is notified for immediate collection.

Since the first phase of installation in 2016 netBin has significantly increased the cleanliness of waste houses, known waste dumping areas and drastically improved the operating efficiency of the local collection teams.

The 5th system expansion will see more waste houses and outside areas fitted with nPods.
