The Swedish municipalities of Helsingborg and Växjö aim to improve their waste management. To do this, they will place 30 and 400 MiniQ sensors respectively. Both projects are carried out in partnership with Stadhubbs Alliansen, a wireless infrastructure and LoRa network operator that covers more than 40 municipalities in Sweden.
The project in Helsingborg will consist in the installation of 30 MiniQ sensors at the Knutpunkten bus and train station. The sensors will be deployed specifically in wastebaskets with the objective of detecting garbage overflows and other incidents that compromise the image of the terminal, especially in a city devoted to tourism such as Helsingborg. The sensorization of the bins also aims to improve the service and study the potential savings of the devices, to extend the sensor network to the bins of the historic center.
Växjö, through SSAM, the municipal waste management company and SUEZ, which owns the concession for collection, will install up to 400 MiniQ sensors in organic and burnable waste containers.
