Use Case: Lufthavne | WasteHero Digital Solutions



Airports host a high frequency of visitors, with the busiest terminals welcoming tens of millions of passengers each year. Due to long layovers and cancelled flights, passengers spend a considerable amount of time at airport concourses and food courts. With plenty of foot traffic, and cleanliness remaining a top priority, waste collection is often an expensive and inefficient operation within airports.

Major Challenges in Venue Waste Collection

Red cross

Inefficient Waste Collection

It's difficult to achieve efficient collection schedules when airport cleaning staff do not know when the bins are exactly going to be filled. This leads to bins being collected either too early or too late.

Red cross

Unproductive Labour Allocation

Collecting containers when they aren't yet full results in increased labour costs and diverts staff from allocating time to other tasks such as washroom and passenger area maintenance.

Overflowing Bins Affect Visitor Satisfaction

Overflowing bins cause unsightly scenes at the airport which impacts visitors' perception of the airport and affects their willingness to return.
