The optimised routing for waste collection which will contribute to collectors’ ability to manage the waste streams more efficiently and hence more sustainability.
Key problems of the users
Solutions (which and how)
Waste collection companies are responsible for the collection of the household waste. Their shareholders are in this project a collaboration of municipalities (with their own governance and goals). In HelloBin these are the target users of the services (the dynamic routing, geo mapping and the geodatabase). Waste collection companies are already using Jewels routing software, the HelloBin service is an added value for their current service. The identified users’ needs from the project are:
And the operational challenges are:
The project HelloBin realized the involved users that geo-data and specific satellite data can be of added value for their daily processes.
Actual and accurate information are essential:
The study confirmed that satellite EO data can be used to monitor the service area. The Thermal mapping needs a further and deeper technical study. Biomass estimation by earth observation is promising to plan efficiently litter collection. Satellite navigation systems are an added value for citizens to get more involved and to inform the municipalities.
