The Problem

Textile banks are an ideal method of capturing donations that can be either reused or recycled. Saving many 1000’s of tonnes being sent to a landfill site. All operators however face 1 major problem. How do they know when their container is full?

The UK has many 1000’s of these special containers located in both Urban and Rural locations providing a vital service for Charities to raise much needed revenue from this resource. How can you establish that your textile banks are operating to their optimal fill level? How do you identify which of your textile banks are becoming full? Overfilling will no doubt breach a service level agreement (SLA) that is set within the agreement to supply the unit at that specific location. Early servicing of your textile banks wastes money and therefore unnecessarily inflates your collection charges, carbon footprint, congestion and environmental impact.

The Cause of the Problem

Lack of visibility, you can’t physically see the volume of its contents until you arrive to empty your unit. Your operatives have therefore travelled to those locations to empty a container.

If the local area donates well, your container could be full or overfilling causing a fly tipping situation to occur. If donations are slow you could end up travelling to that location and finding it virtually empty.

The Solution

With BinLogix sensors, the guesswork is taken out of your waste management collections.

Our sensors enable your containers to tell you when they need emptying, enabling you to schedule collections only when they’re needed. That means the risk of overflow is a thing of the past and costs of servicing your textile recycling banks comes down, removing the need for unnecessary service visits to keep you compliant.

Each low-cost bin sensor makes use of our proven fill level forecasting technology to remotely report its location and fill level to both your central management information platform and to an operative’s mobile device, enabling them to easily locate each textile bank on a map, maximizing their efficiency.

Not only does this streamline your textile collections in the here and now, builds a detailed picture of your textile bank usage, enabling you to identify those areas overserved with bins and reallocate resources to areas more in need.

Managers and collection operatives now get full visibility of the collection/emptying requirements across your network and can schedule collection crews to service your textile containers in the most effective way.

This enables them to adjust and optimize their collection routes and service scheduling to meet individual site requirements.
