  • Deployment of solar waste compacting bins, ultrasonic fill-level sensors and trackers/beacons
  • Utilization of data resource management platform to monitor & analyze various data points



The project integrates hardware (M2M) and software enabling real-time data along, route optimization, fill-level information w/ push notifications, and analysis of historical collection data.

Major Requirements

  • Create scope and requirement, project plan
  • Identify the locations for hardware deployments within each city
  • Information regarding MSW containers (tech specs, model no., dimensions, field pictures)
  • Provide access to software data for real-time monitoring

Performance Targets

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) Measurement Methods
  • Average waste vehicle travel time compared to baseline
  • Average waste collection frequency compared to baseline
  • Average waste overflow rates compared to baseline
  • Solar waste compacting bin & ultrasonic fill-level sensors collect data in real-time and sends it back to the cloud server
  • Provide pre-study collection forms to attain current operational efficiency to be used as the baseline

Standards, Replicability, Scalability, and Sustainability

The software platform can be access either directly to through the cloud server or API access can be provided to be utilized as part of a bigger city dashboard.

  • Reduction in waste vehicle(s) and travel times
  • Reduction in Greenhouse gases
  • Cleaner public spaces
  • Transparency & accountability to residents


  • Full deployment of solar powered waste compacting bins and/or ultrasonic fill level sensors will be in use and collecting real-time used to present at the event
  • Demo will include both real-time and historical data to compare results in collection frequency, travel time, waste volume, and cost
