SmartTrash - Wireless Compactor Monitoring & Management System
The SmartTrash compactor monitor hardware is installed on or near to the compactor's control panel. It will timestamp, record and analyse all of the compactor activity; including energy utilisation, directional valve shifts, safety door switches and the pick up and return of the compactor.
Compactor data from the SmartTrash unit is relayed to our Data Centre and uploaded into our SQL Database Management Software, where it is processed and evaluated by our 24/7 trained personnel, who monitor fullness, check performance and who are focused on making sure your compactor is exchanged 'just in time'.
SmartTrash is the only waste management system offering a full range of data mining and control features. All of the data is stored and backed up on our server, allowing us to create bespoke reporting on the savings, weights achieved and the detailed activity of your compactor. SmartTrash can be used on compactors, balers, waste chutes, lifters, conveyors and scales. Whether you want to limit access, count bales, troubleshoot equipment, optimise pickups or simply make sure your container is never overweight, SmartTrash can provide you a solution for greater efficiency.
SmartTrash RFID Card Access System allows you to control and log individual usage of electrically interlocked compactors, balers or gravity waste chute intake doors. This prevents unauthorised people from using the compactor, and is especially beneficial in multi-tenant facilities where it can be almost impossible to track the compactor's usage and by whom.
SmartTrash Nodes can extend the functionality of the SmartTrash monitor hardware base station to control various types of equipment, while recording event data for up to 64 wireless devices. This would be ideally placed in organisations with multiple compactors on site.
By installing the SmartTrash monitor and optimising compactor exchanges without causing “pack-outs” or unnecessary pickups, expensive transportation costs can be eliminated. We maintain competitive pricing and avoid high upfront costs. Our product solution is simple, reliable and has been proven to save our customers a minimum of 25% on their waste disposal costs.
Now your staff can concentrate on being more efficient in your business without the need of supervising a non-productive activity.
SmartTrash eliminates the requirement for your staff to physically check on the compactors fullness, no need to manually schedule collections, and with our standard and bespoke reporting suite, you can receive reports to illustrate collection dates and weights; an essential for bill validation, compactor usage by day/night and environmental & cost savings reports to name but a few.
We are committed to the principle of operational efficiency and reducing transport costs which assist in less traffic, fuel and pollution.
This is easily achieved by reducing the number of unnecessary collections, therefore reducing your organisations carbon footprint and meeting your sustainability goals.
