In the city of Stuttgart, an estimated 12,500 tonnes of glass are placed in recycling bins each year. REMONDIS, one of the world’s largest recycling, service and water companies, is responsible for collecting that glass. To help streamline the collection process, REMONDIS decided to deploy the Binando modules in an initial 1,000 glass recycling bins at around 330 locations across the city.
Now, REMONDIS collection crews no longer travel a standard route. At the start of each shift, the crew find the day’s timetable in the Binando app. Dispatchers and drivers can easily and conveniently exchange information at any time via the app.
After just a few months, the Binando solution has produced measurable results. REMONDIS have reduced mileage spent on glass collection in Stuttgart by 33 percent while collecting 10 percent more glass each month.
With an estimated 15 percent fewer collection trips needed, this solution is helping reduce traffic congestion and pollution in Stuttgart. A long-term analysis of the data should also make it clear where new recycling bins need to be installed.
As Binando continue to gain contracts with municipalities and contractors in Germany, they have their sights set on the international market. The team plan to roll out new functionalities which will further support digitalization in the waste removal industry and the sustainable use of the Earth’s resources.
