A smart solution benefits everyone.

adhoc smart waste – the solution for intelligent fill level monitoring and waste container emptying from adhoc networks

Smart city garbage container smart waste disposal

How smart can waste be? Waste would admittedly be truly smart if it were not created in the first place, but a world without waste is (still) a utopia. We therefore want to make a real, tangible contribution to resolving the existing problems and challenges in relation to waste disposal – to enable you to make optimum use of your resources.

The status quo is
not an option.

The lack of reliable data on fill levels and waste volumes poses major challenges for waste disposal companies:

Fluctuating waste volumes

Seasonal influences, trends and specific occurrences, such as coronavirus, result in fluctuating waste volumes that are hard to predict or calculate.

Fixed volume and fixed collection intervals

The fixed container volume and fixed collection intervals are not ideal for the sometimes highly fluctuating waste volumes. This results in containers being emptied too frequently or too rarely.

Increasing use of systems that cannot be visibly monitored

A particular challenge in urban areas is that waste containers that cannot be visibly monitored make it hard to quickly assess how full they are.

High additional cleaning costs

Cleaning overfilled containers and the area around them that usually ends up scattered with waste is costly and requires additional work.

Our solution
is adhoc smart waste.

Our system is designed to provide benefit from day one. As such, we do not believe that it is enough to simply install smart, robust and reliable sensors. We want a holistic solution. And that needs more: the right web platform and the convenience of a comprehensive system.

system instead of an isolated solution Hardware. Software. Service.

adhoc smart waste –
the benefits

A clear picture

You can finally get a detailed and precise picture at all times, e.g. of container fill levels and collection processes.

Needs-oriented planning

The up-to-date overview of waste volumes enables waste collections to be arranged as needed, avoiding both unnecessary journeys and overfilled containers.

More service

Your customers and citizens also benefit from the collated information, e.g. about fill levels, through improved products and services.

Protects the environment and saves money

Processes can be reliably optimised thanks to real-time data: savings can be made on fuel and man hours plus containers can be efficiently used.

Only pay for what you really need:
The data in the subscription model

Obtain maximum benefits and added value conveniently and without risk thanks to our subscription model: to enable you to fully focus on your core business and the optimisation of your processes and resources, we supply you with the necessary data – while also ensuring the entire system works safely and reliably.

Benefit from low investment costs, minimal additional work and complete cost control thanks to a transparent monthly flat-rate fee (that not only covers the provision of the data but also any maintenance or repair work, the sensors and the web platform). All you need to do is perform the initial installation as per our detailed instructions and conduct a visual inspection once a year.
