The bin thing

IoT based waste monitoring


This sensor was designed with a small form factor to enable easy integration into existing waste bins. The Bin Thing is powered by a small battery and can upload one measurement per hour for 5 years. By doing so, cities and municipalities can proactively measure the bin fill level of their waste baskets.

Hardware: custom made PCB with ARM Cortex-M0+ processor

TheBinThing is a product that focuses on environmentally responsible waste management. By providing a better insight in waste level, waste is collected less often. This in turn results in less CO2 emissions.

With “TheBinThing”, we have designed a device that enables waste collection stakeholders to actively monitor waste bin levels. The sensor is small (~ 5 cm) and light (120 g) and can easily be integrated into existing waste baskets.
