In today’s world, there is technology for almost everything including junk removal services and waste management. Smart waste management technology will allow businesses to track their waste more closely, save on the costs of waste disposal and lessen the impact to the environment.
A groundbreaking technology for waste management is OnePlus Metro which is an ultrasonic trash can sensor that tells if the trash container is already full. This technology comes with Wasteforce platform that allows easy monitoring of the trash container’s capacity from anywhere. It also includes detailed analytics so that an organization can efficiently track their waste. Complete visibility of the trash container reduces the costs associated to overfilling the dumpster. Data will also help in optimizing trash pickup schedules.
Ecube Labs is an innovative company that provides eco-friendly waste technology for North and South America, Europe and the Middle East.

San Francisco, California-based Compology has introduced image-based trash can sensors that can automatically monitor fullness and content. It also includes GPS tracking to help in optimizing driver routes and fuel efficiency including tilt monitoring to record when the container gets picked up and put down. Junk haulers can streamline their operations, enhance customer service and simplify analytics through this technology.
A smart waste collection system called ecoATM can be found in 2,800 kiosks in malls, large retail stores and groceries across the United States.
