Our Smart Waste Collection Route Planner

Our smart waste collection route planner is a custom-developed IoT application, which is connected to WasteHero Analytics and provides turn-by-turn route direction to waste collectors, while also allowing them to give feedback on the container that could not be collected.

Our smart waste collection route planner optimizes the route in real time, and therefore always provides the most efficient way of collecting the containers. Finally, all the waste collection data is translated into our Analytics Platform, which further enhances operational and recycling efficiency.

Our smart waste collection route planner always considers the current traffic information and routing constraints, while also enabling all the drivers that are using our smart waste collection route planner to receive and use the most efficient routes to the containers. Our smart waste collection route planner offers easy turn-by-turn navigation for waste collectors and the option to skip unnecessary and costly routes, minimizing operational costs and CO2 emissions.

Main Benefits of Our Smart Waste Collection Route Planner

Convenient

Our smart waste collection route planner was designed and engineered to meet the specific needs of waste collectors. All routes are optimized in real-time, based on available traffic information and constraints. At the same time, our route planner also provides drivers with the possibility to easily customize routes on the go, if there were containers that no longer needed emptying, for instance.

Our smart waste collection route planner is available on any major mobile platforms in multiple languages. Should there be a need for a specific language, we would be happy to customize our route planner to the desired language.

Edit routes on-the-go

While our smart waste collection route planner automatically plans and optimizes waste collection routes to maximize the utilization of collection vehicles and minimize the associated costs, our route planner also offers the possibility to customize each individual routes, even when drivers are on the go.

Drivers can easily choose to remove existing containers from the route, if they should no longer be collected. Furthermore, it is possible to set specific attributes for each collection vehicle such as cost, availability, commodity type and collection capacity.

Turn-By-Turn Directions

When developing our smart waste collection route planner, we tried to make the life of waste collectors as seamless as possible. That is why we included turn-by-turn navigation and voice instructions in our smart waste collection route planner.

In this way, drivers are not required to set up new directions after every emptying, instead they can simply follow the dedicated routes one after the other.

Frequently asked questions

Our app is responsive and can run both on smartphones and tablets supporting Android. An iOS version will also be made available at a later stage.
The primary functionality of the app is to guide waste collectors to all the containers that need to be emptied, in the fastest, most optimal way. Secondly, the app measures the collection efficiency and synchronizes this data with the WasteHero Analytics Platform to provide detailed waste collection analytics.
