The town installed solar-powered compactor equipped Bigbelly bins. A sensor inside the bin activates the compactor when the rubbish gets to a certain level. Crushing the contents enables a Bigbelly bin to hold up to six times more waste than a standard rubbish bin. The bin sends real-time level data to a dashboard that lets contractors and city operational leaders know how full the bin is, and when it needs emptying.
The Interceptor is The Ocean Cleanup’s answer for river plastic waste. It is the first scalable solution to prevent plastic from entering the world’s oceans from rivers. It is 100% solar-powered, extracts plastic autonomously, and is capable of operating in the majority of the world’s most polluting rivers. The debris enters the Interceptor with the natural current of the river. All electronics on the Interceptor, including the conveyor belt, shuttle, lights, sensors, data transmission, are solar-powered.
The town of Forssa is in the middle of the Finnish agricultural landscape, located within a triangle formed by the three largest cities in Finland, and with good transportation connections. The largest national research institute for agriculture and bioeconomy is also located in the Forssa region.
The underground waste container system will include 2 underground systems with 3 containers with 2,200-liter capacity.
This system will be managed through smart and sustainable IT solutions that will enable us to further upgrade the established system.
Smart waste collection containers were installed in Zalaegerszeg as part of the Interreg Hungary-Croatia Cross-border Program. Many investments have already been made in the smart city program. Among other things, new electric charging stations have been developed, a waste management facility has been built and the Smart City mobile application is being tested. These containers are similar to conventional selective waste bins. They differ in that their sensors signal when they are full and notify the service company.
The BIOFABRIK Technologies GmbH group of companies based in Dresden develops and markets innovative technologies for the sustainable management of energy, nutrition and waste problems worldwide.

In March 2018, the City of Kwinana installed drainage nets at two locations in Henley Reserve as a trial. The nets were installed in an effort to reduce the discharge of rubbish from drainage systems within the City, in particular areas where road drainage is discharged into public open spaces and reserves.
In 4 months both nets have been cleaned three times with a total of 370kg of debris collected by the drainage nets which has been removed and disposed of. The debris consisted of food wrappings, drink bottles, sand and tree leaves.
Austria’s first ever fully electro-powered waste collection vehicle is designed to use 100 percent battery power both for its drive engine and for the waste collection and compacting unit. As a result, the vehicle produces zero emissions and significantly reduces noise levels during routine operation. This is the first ever vehicle of this kind ever built in Austria.
Bigbelly is the world leader of smart waste & recycling solutions for public spaces. Communities and facilities deploy smart, solar-powered, sensor-equipped waste & recycling stations that communicate real-time status to collection crews to enable efficiencies.
Dubai’s Al Mamzar Beach Park has gone smart with a host of first-of-its-kind facilities.
