One of the key reasons why any organization or city would install solar waste receptacles is that they decrease the frequency of the waste collections and dispatches significantly. This is due to the fact that solar trash receptacles are able to trigger an automatic compaction of the waste, effectively enhancing the trash receptacles capacity by as high as 8 times. This implies that a 100-liter trash receptacle can take up to 500-800 liters of waste, moving daily collections to weekly collections.
More Hygienic & Cleaner Public Spaces
Solar trash receptacles result in cleaner streets and environments. Apart from decreasing collection frequency, the smart compactors transmit real-time fill-level data to a SaaS based waste analytics protocol, wireless, to keep waste collectors informed about each trash can’s fill-level status. The software stimulates auto push notifications when a trash can is getting fill so that collection can be made on time. With predictive analytics, the collection personnel can also forecast when all trash receptacles will be full.
Previous Data Analytics Of Waste Collection
Solar trash receptacles send real-time data to the waste analytics platform, which waste collection staff can use to determine the present fill-level status, optimize the collection routes, get push notifications and create data analytics reports. These reports provide meaningful insights on waste generation, waste overflow and collection performance. On the basis of previous data and intelligent algorithms, a waste analytics platform even gives predictive fill-level forecasts for further optimizing collection operations.
Decreasing greenhouse gas emissions
Combined with waste analytics platform, the solar trash receptacles also let waste collecting companies to lower their greenhouse has emission. This is because the solar trash receptacles don’t need to be collected on a frequent basis, unlike ordinary bins. Fewer collections imply less transportation and fuel consumption. In addition to reducing emission of carbon dioxide, less frequency of collection also leads to reduced noise and road wear.
