Enevo generates smart waste collection plans for cities by using wireless sensors to measure and predict how full waste containers are, thus saving time, money and reducing emissions.

Enevo One is a waste monitoring solution that helps cities optimize their waste collection via a network of small wireless sensors installed within waste containers and public bins. The sensors provide real-time data on the fill-level for each receptacle. Based on this data, the system forecasts and calculates the most cost-efficient collection plan based on fill rates, truck availability and traffic information. All this data is accessible to waste collection managers via Enevo’s web services. The company’s app directs waste collection trucks along the most efficient routes, and enables the drivers to report problems on route.

Physically collecting waste is the most expensive part of waste management. In the USA it is estimated to make up over 60% of the costs, and with waste production expected to rise on a global scale from 1.3 to 2.2 billion tons per year by 2025, being able to cut the associated costs will interest municipal authorities. Using big data to optimize collection routes cuts costs, time and vehicle emissions.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Sustainable cities and communities

When waste is collected in a timely manner, it prevents overflows, keeping litter out of the surrounding city environment. Spending less time on the streets also cuts harmful emissions and reduces air pollution.

Climate action

Optimizing waste pick-up routes reduces CO2 emissions associated with the transportation of waste in diesel-fueled trucks.
