The challenge

Garbage collection from public waste baskets is a huge cost driver for all communities. The intelligent waste basket system from Iacta capital helps communities to avoid waste of money with the right waste collection system as it continuously measures its level of trash and transmits this data together with its position to the control centre of the communities (GNSS & GSM).The disposal teams now become flexible in responding to fluctuations in the waste collection.

The solution

The intelligent waste basket system from Iacta capital named “OSCAR” works completely autonomously. “OSCAR” continuously measures its level of trash and transmits the data to the control center. Disposal teams are always aware of this and when it becomes critically somewhere they are able to flexibly respond to fluctuations in the collection of this waste. “OSCAR” compresses its contents automatically. With this technology “OSCAR” can tolerate about 3 to 4 times as much content as a traditional trash can. The software for the route optimization sends the disposal teams only to “OSCARs” that are as good as full. The disposal teams gain valuable time for other tasks.
