Smart Bin Sensor

Our Cloud-Based Ultrasonic & Optical Fill Level Sensor

The WasteHero Smart Bin Sensor is engineered and designed to ensure the most accurate measurements possible. Our unique smart bin sensor is the only one on the market, which offers both optical and ultrasonic sensing technologies for fill level measurements. The fill-level data is then visualized and utilized in WasteHero’s platform ensuring efficient route planning.

The WasteHero Smart Bin Sensor can be mounted in any type of waste container. It is rugged, water resistant and offers a long battery life. Together with our data processing Smart Waste Analytics Platform, our smart bin sensor enables cities and waste management companies to increase their collection efficiency by up to 50%.

Frequently asked questions

Our smart bin sensors can be mounted in both, new and existing bins. We provide mounting options for various types of waste containers to ensure that more waste is being handled in a more efficient way.
The mounting of the smart bin sensors can be done in less than 5 minutes, in various types of waste containers. Thanks to the quick mounting procedure, it is also easy to replace sensors, if that is at any time required.
Yes, our smart bin sensors are designed and engineered so that they can measure any type of waste, whether it may be mixed waste, paper, plastics, glass, liquid, clothing, electronics or metal.
No need to worry. Our smart bin sensors use wireless IoT networks (Sigfox, LoRaWAN), which makes data transfer possible under very limited networks.
The batteries in our smart bin sensors were designed and engineered to last over 10 years. However, battery life is dependent on the frequency of measurements.
