German TV news station, NDR, recently covered one of SmartBin’s deployments in Germany with GAB Umwelt Service. SmartBin’s solution currently monitors fill-levels and generates optimised collection routes to the paper recycling bins serviced by GAB Umwelt Service in Hamburg.
“We want to actually solve several problems,” says Lutz Lieberzeit of GAB Umwelt Service. Operational savings such as fuel and labour have already been made by the collector thanks to the intelligent monitoring of dozens of containers.
Most notably however, citizens are no longer seeing untidy over-filled bin sites as containers are being serviced at the optimum time. Winfried Weiß of GAB Umwelt Service says “Since using SmartBin™, the place has become much cleaner!”.
