Frequently asked questions

Our smart bin sensors can be mounted in both, new and existing bins. We provide mounting options for various types of waste containers to ensure that more waste is being handled in a more efficient way.

The mounting of the smart bin sensors can be done in less than 5 minutes, in various types of waste containers. Thanks to the quick mounting procedure, it is also easy to replace sensors, if that is at any time required.

Yes, our smart bin sensors are designed and engineered so that they can measure any type of waste, whether it may be mixed waste, paper, plastics, glass, liquid, clothing, electronics or metal.

No need to worry. WasteHero optical flow sensors use wireless IoT networks (Sigfox, LoRaWAN), which makes data transfer possible under very limited networks.

The batteries in our device were engineered to last over 10 years. However, battery life is dependent on the frequency of measurements.

It is very easy and takes less than 3 minutes. To attach the sensor to the container you need to drill 4 bolts using electric tools. We include the manual to guide you through the process of installation.

WasteHero solution doesn’t have any limits about the location. Smart bin sensors can be used in every country.

No, it does not. Our device uses optical sensing as it is much more precise and reliable in measurement than the ultrasonic technology.
