Applications for Waste ManagementMunicipal waste collection is a necessity, but current methods are proving to be less efficient. Waste and recycling containers are typically emptied on a set schedule, even when they are partially full or empty. There are also issues with overfilling bins in commercial and residential areas, resulting in unsightly litter that poses human health and environmental hazards.
 
LoRa sensors for waste management make it possible to provide on-demand waste management services, saving you money on fuel, labor, and other costs.  The added benefit of operational analytics makes it easy to track waste levels throughout all your routes and help your city meet its sustainability goals.
