Trimble has introduced its new cBin solution which consists of a remote sensor in a container and sends fill level and asset status information through wireless communications to a web portal that can be accessed to manage container inventory and pickups.
The new cBin manages remote recycling containers and its sensors automatically measure container fill levels hourly and send updates to the portal.
If fill levels exceed action levels, immediate updates are sent by the cBin. It provides the ability to environmental services professionals and fleet managers to see container fill levels on a daily basis and the tools to build customized collection routes to pick-up full containers.
Trimble Environmental Solutions Business Area director Elmar Lenz said the solution can redefine how recycled materials are being collected.
"With cBin, recyclers and fleet managers can reduce collection cost, improve their forecasting process, and utilize their fleets more efficiently," Lenz added.
