Stadiums and Events

Use Cases

Stadiums & Venues

Stadiums and venues worldwide host massive sporting events and major music festivals, with thousands of fans clocking in and out every day. With that kind of capacity, generating vast amounts of waste becomes inevitable. This poses significant challenges in running an optimised, sustainable and cost-efficient waste collection operation.

Major Challenges in Venue Waste Collection

Red cross

High Traffic & Unpredictable Fill Rates

Stadiums and other mass capacity venues unavoidably generate large volumes of waste, often at an unpredictable filling rate. Without understanding waste generation patterns and hot spots, it can be difficult to plan the best collection time and container infrastructure.

Health & Safety Concerns

Late collection of bins results in overflowing rubbish that poses health risks not only to patrons of the venue, but also to the staff collecting the waste. Conversely, if waste is collected too early, staff are allocated inefficiently, putting a strain on limited labour resources.

Unable to Measure Sustainable Initiatives

Many venue managers are increasingly eager to introduce initiatives to meet sustainability goals, such as the improvement of recycling rates or even zero waste to landfills, but are missing a reliable method to measure the progress of their efforts.
