With sensors that signal the degree of filling, the number of emptying operations has been more than halved in the Farsta and Skarpnäck areas, while littering has been reduced.


On-demand collection of waste containers

A sub-project within Diaccess has been the need-based emptying of waste bins where the waste bins in the environmental rooms call for emptying. See the full movie about the sub-project and how it has gone.

Innovation project 'Smart bins' delivered results beyond expectations

A new era for waste management has begun with the "Smart bins" innovation project. The 18-month pilot project is now completed and the objectives set have been achieved by far. In addition, the AI technology used in the project has been found to be operational in real life.


Connecting waste bins for better recycling

The environment gains from better waste sorting. In the recycling system, too much waste is burned that could be recycled. 90 % of the emissions from burning of residual waste is caused by the unnecessary amount of plastic waste not being sorted.


Expensive to throw rubbish in Residual waste

Incorrectly sorted waste costs the municipal company Helsingborgshem a lot of money, and for several years the cost of waste management has increased by about two million per year. Now they want all tenants to become better at sorting to reduce costs.


Bintel closes new investment round

As an impact company, we raised a new investment round of 14 million to scale up our business in smart digital solutions for the waste industry. Investors include Almi Invest Greentech and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).


Helsingborgshem is investing to overcome incorrect waste sorting.

Much of the waste is not sorted or is sorted incorrectly in several of Helsingborgshem's Recycling room. This is not only bad for the environment but also costs a lot of money. Therefore, Helsingborgshem is now taking a number of measures to overcome the problem.


Reducing environmental impact with sensors in waste bins

Sensors in rest area waste containers limit and optimize the number of emptying rounds to rest areas, according to a new pilot project.


Sensors keep track of garbage rooms - after a successful test, all bins are digitized.

Waste bins are equipped with a sensor that alerts you if the bin is full. Höganäshem's Anders Nordberg believes that this could be somewhat revolutionary. The housing company is now equipping 550 bins with digital sensors.


The housing company Höganäshem is the first player in Sweden to invest in full-scale digitization of all its Recycling room.

In a collaboration with Bintel and NSR, Nordvästra Skånes Renhållnings AB, a total of 40 Recycling room and 550 containers will now be equipped with level measuring sensors. By monitoring how quickly the different types of waste fill the bins, physical efforts in combination with level measurement can be made to avoid overfilled bins, littering and unnecessary quantities Residual waste.


Smart waste management

One of the first sub-projects of the SOM project explored how IoT can be used to transform the waste industry. The company Bintel tested whether sensors can be used to position municipal waste containers and also to measure the level of waste containers.


Demand-driven emptying of waste bins creates security

In a report published by Keep Sweden Tidy, the results show that people's trust and confidence in various social actors can be damaged by littering occurring in the public outdoor environment. This, in turn, can also affect what feels unsafe in the residential area, the local area and society as a whole.


The sustainable society

Many bins are far from full when they are emptied - but new technologies are changing this. See how smart sensors and connectivity can help us create a more sustainable society.

When the containers at a collection point have reached a certain level, the system calculates when it is most optimal for the garbage truck to arrive.


New Swedish Solutions that Simplify Recycling

Why are waste bins equipped with e-smart sensor devices beneficial for the environment?


Digital Recycling room a winner

An environmental project at Höganäshem shows that sensors in the waste bins have resulted in 40 percent less waste. The company is now digitizing all its Recycling room.


Digital initiative

Soon, 1 400 bins in apartment buildings in Växjö will only be emptied when needed. This is expected to result in an economic saving of five percent - and valuable experience on how to best coordinate the many actors involved.


All Recycling room in Höganäs go digital

Höganäshem is the first company in Sweden to make a full-scale effort to digitize all its Recycling room.
