Insights on waste collection and big data

Major data collection installations in the waste industry are often based on controlling the garbage truck and making this part of the operation more efficient. What the industry is now realising is that there are many other insights from data, which are sometimes even more exciting and have greater potential than the collection logistics themselves.

3 tips to effectively get started with data-driven collection

At Bintel, we have some of the world's largest installations of sensors for data-driven waste collection on our conscience. Unfortunately, when breaking new ground, you fall into many traps and learn the hard way. Here are some tips for those of you who are about to start using data to do better. Hopefully, they will help you round the worst pitfalls.

Easy-to-use web-based interface that provides useful and tailored recommendations to increase the degree of sorting in waste streams and thus make it easier to achieve both financial and environmental goals.

3 ways to use data within waste management

Data and information that an IoT device provides to a company can and should be widely used throughout the business. Depending on the purpose of the project, data from a device can be used in different ways.

5 steps to becoming a more data-driven business

The huge development of new technologies and functions in recent years has enabled both small and medium sized companies to be transformed into data-driven companies. All with the aim of becoming more efficient, better and more environmentally friendly.

Construction & Metal Scrap

Sorting bins with metal waste and scrap waste that, with the help of Bintel's slider, sends a signal

Construction, scrap and metal are often forgotten when it comes to digitalisation. The application is difficult to address if you are stuck in the classic approach: Measure and empty at a certain level. This is because the waste is often large, sprawling and difficult to saturate – while the containers are often rotated and shifted places. This places higher demands on the system than in many other applications. We like it.

Oil, Grease & Degreasing

Smart handling of grease and oil waste containers that send signal

Call-offs and logistics related to various products and degreasing, used in workshops, are often analogous. That no longer has to be the case. With the right data, these flows can be streamlined and automated, so that the workshop can do more important things, without downtime.


Garbage truck emptying containers

Few applications show such wide range in usage. We are not only talking about great variation in emptying efficiency, but also other challenges such as large geographical spread between the containers and flows with rotating containers.
No matter what type of container you have, and how you use it, Bintel has probably thought again how this can be digitized and streamlined. If not, then we will be happy to learn something new, and solve your problem together with you.

Open Data, APIs, and Integrations

You as a customer own your data in Bintel's service. This means that you own the information and can choose which internal and external stakeholders that gets access to your data. Data can be shared through different types of integrations. Which integration is relevant, and when is it to be done?
