A network of 800 smart iBiNs have been installed around Malta & Gozo. These revolutionary iBiNs are equipped with smart technology that enables citizens to recycle 24/7 and spells an end to overflowing bring-in sites.
Using next generation Internet of Things technology introduced for the first time to the island by Vodafone Malta, the iBiNs have the capability to monitor waste levels and feed information back to a central system which enables GreenPak’s recycling service to prioritise and customise collection routes in the localities it serves across Malta and Gozo.
The smart iBiNs are being supported through the Business Enhance ERDF Grant Schemes Initiative, and part-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under Operational Programme I 2014-2020 ‘Fostering a competitive and sustainable economy to meet our challenges’.
Apart from eradicating unsightly overflowing, the bins will enable GreenPak to avoid unnecessary truck movements and focus only on those bins which actually need to be emptied, improving the quality of air and improving traffic on our roads.
The iBiNs are managed in real time and data received is fed into the fleet management system, informing drivers which ones require urgent attention or not. Apart from helping GreenPak improve its service, thanks to this, GreenPak will also be minimising the carbon footprint and reducing costs.
GreenPak has also developed a web-app and has teamed up with Vodafone Malta to provide this technology to the public. Through their phones or tablets, the public is informed of the bins closest to them so that they can determine if these have spare capacity to take more recyclable material.
On selecting the colour-coded image of the iBiN, the app informs you whether the iBiN has free space to take your recyclables. If the bin is full, the app guides you to the next nearest available iBiN via a Google Map interface.
The iBiNs offer a service that allows the public to recycle waste – anytime, anywhere.
