It’s the company Bintel, who together with SSAM (Växjö municipality's waste and environmental company) that will develop the new solution during an innovation partnership.
A previous pilot study, carried out by SSAM, has shown that many waste bins are far from full when the waste trucks arrive. The study showed that about half of the bins could be emptied more efficiently, if taking the degree of filling into consideration, instead of today's static driving schedules.
The new solution that will be tested in practice in Växjö will include 1400 waste bins that take care of food and residual waste. At this stage, the focus is on waste from apartment buildings and businesses. In the long run, it may also handle garden waste from villas.
Using data driven intelligence for waste pickups is expected to result in lower environmental impact and a better economic solution. Therefore, the innovation collaboration between Bintel and SSAM in Växjö has already attracted interest, from the media, as well as industry colleagues, other municipalities and external tenant associations.
