Smart Waste Collection



The waste collection routes will be optimized employing a special application. Due to the sensors located directly in the waste containers, which will be linked online with the application, the application can intelligently plan the collection route.



  • Optimal waste collection from large-volume containers, primarily underground
  • Fire and clogging detection



  • Reduction in waste collection costs
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Improved road accessibility
  • Collection of data for further processing and public space optimization



As part of a twelve-month pilot project, 420 sensors will be installed into waste containers (e.g. glass, plastics and other types of recyclable waste). The real technology benefits will be subsequently evaluated and a decision will be made on whether to expand or modify the project.
