People are creating more waste than ever. Bins are overflowing faster and faster, partly due to all of the packaging food comes in nowadays, and partly due to not enough collection times. That is why it’s more important than ever to deal with it efficiently.
So, what can be done to prevent this problem with bins on a wider scale?
Some of the solutions are quite simple, like getting more regular collections, or making efforts to reduce the waste you generate. As for more specialised solutions, smart solar-powered compactor bins are popular in many public areas. These can hold up to eight times as much waste as normal bins due to their compaction process, function through solar power to be eco-friendly, and have the technology to inform those collecting the waste when the bin is about to become full to prevent them overflowing!
In smaller areas, smart fill-level sensors in bins are more appropriate in terms of spacing, playing the same role in monitoring when the bin is full. A monitoring platform can also be put in place to plan out future collections ahead of time, making collections far more efficient and costs being reduced by 50%.
With new ways to use bins, overflowing bins may soon stop being a problem, hopefully bringing an end to the problems of large amounts of business and household waste as well. That being said, we’ll probably find a way to make more waste in the meantime. Will the Northern Beaches Council look at these options? Not sure, but we hope so. All these pictures were taken tonight, by Manly wharf, by the bus stop by Gilbert Park and by the main beach.
