This device acquires the filling level of waste containers and ambient temperature, then sends collected data over the LoRaWAN™ network with a scheduled timing or by event (eg. emptying).

Unlike other waste sensors with single transducer, the sensor developed by mcf88 reads the actual filling level on the entire container’s area. A fire alarm can be managed thanks to the temperature sensor.

This sensor can help to reduce amount of collections, which reflects in less fuel, less labor, less fleet management costs, reduced CO2 emissions and pollution, cleaner public spaces and avoiding trash cans overflow.
