17 Jun What role does Smart Waste Management play in a Smart City?
Cities are looking for intelligent solutions that facilitate efficient management of the services provided to the citizen.
And in the specific case of urban waste management it is a complex process that also requires resources such as costs, operational efficiency or the customer satisfaction.
Smart Waste Management in a Smart City
The increase in the use of Smart Sensors, machine-to-machine connectivity and especially the Internet of Things has opened up a range of possibilities for reducing costs and operations.
There are two innovative aspects to using Smart Waste Management in a Smart City:
One of the obsessions of any company or public service is to reduce the time and resources dedicated to certain tasks. City councils spend around 250€ per capita annually to collect and manage waste.
A Smart Solution allows to know the state in which the containers are, planning the collections in the most efficient way.
On the other hand, we have the reduction of the amount of garbage by the citizen. This process is more complicated since it requires very precise IoT sensors capable of predicting when and how much garbage will be produced.
The fact is that citizens and companies spend millions of euros every year on rubbish. Education plays a key role here in reducing this annual amount.
