The Royal Borough of Greenwich has installed 18 PEL solar powered IoT SolarStreetBin™ bins with a view to increasing the efficiency of bin collection service in the borough.
Greenwich London Borough Council in South-East London has launched a project to investigate the potential impact of an IoT litter bin on the litter collection service offered by the borough. The PEL120SSB solar powered IoT litter bin, sourced from PEL (UK) Rentals Ltd is supplied with a compaction system, a sensor for measuring litter levels within the bin and a wireless transmitter which communicates the fill-level data via PEL BriteBin™ software to the borough’s litter collections team.
The PEL120SSB IoT SolarStreetBin™ bin have been installed in 9 busy high street locations across the borough and will replace the existing double chamber bins used in those locations. The bins are being deployed in pairs with one bin designated for general waste with the second bin in the station labelled for recycling wastes.
The IoT SolarStreetBin™ collects litter in a standard 120 Litre wheelie bin which allows standard comb lift equipped litter collections trucks to service the bins. The bin’s solar powered compactor increases its litter holding capacity by up to x10 over that of a normal bin. This increased capacity will lead to a dramatic reduction in the number of visits required to service the bins.
Each IoT SolarStreetBin™ bin is equipped with a bin-fill level sensor linked to the BriteBin™ reporting software. The software allows the Royal Borough of Greenwich to identify when bins are full and to dispatch the collection trucks to only those bins requiring service.
The combination of alerts and increased capacity will lead to a reduction in collection visits, will cut collections traffic and the associated emissions, increase efficiencies and ultimately reduce overall litter collection costs for the borough.Click here for more informationClick here for related articles
