How it works

How does it work



The Bin Thing is easy to install in any waste basket. The laser beam with which the level is measured is aimed easily at the center of the waste basket. In this way, this smart IoT sensor can even be mounted on a curved wall.


Mobile access

Collectors can autonomously select and collect waste baskets via an app or can follow an assigned route. The app automatically shows all full waste baskets relative to your location.

The app allows a collector to report incidents via photos and text.

Small form factor

The Bin Thing is very small (Ø50x67mm) and is easy to assemble. The battery is easy to replace via a screw cap.



Each sensor sends a measurement every half hour. You can follow all measurements via the portal site and you can plan routes for the collectors. The portal site itself proposes the shortest route along all full waste baskets.
