Smart Sensor technology optimizes service levels and reduces costs
With seasonal fluctuations in waste and recycling levels, Fanshawe College found it difficult to harmonize bin capacity with service. With increasing waste and recycling costs, Fanshawe needed a smart solution that could coordinate service schedules with varying bin levels, and keeps costs consistently low.
Fanshawe turned to Waste Solutions Canada for the implementation of Smart Sensor technology and a procurement strategy to optimize service and reduce waste costs. Placed on specific bins throughout the campus, Smart Sensors enabled remote monitoring of bin waste levels, providing real-time information to eliminate bin overflow and ensure only as-needed waste pickup and charges.
Waste Solutions Canada’s addition of Smart Sensor technology on bins at Fanshawe presented an effective accommodation for seasonal fluctuations in waste and recycling levels. With technology in place to provide real-time insights, aligning procurement with demand became simple and ultimately resulted in lowered rates and surcharges.
