Smart Sensor technology optimizes service levels and reduces costs

the challenge

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.

our solution

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.
