Solution details


Business cases

BrighterBins Stick&Go

There is a market potential of 8 million public waste bin sensors, but the installed base is less than 50,000.

The economic and environmental benefits of waste bin sensors are clear, but limitations in the design and cost are preventing adoption by cities.

We have designed, developed, and manufactured industrialized waste bin sensors that overcome these shortcomings to make waste bin sensors “standard” in public bins in Europe and North America.

Expected impact

Done right, Brighter-Bins has the potential to be a € 15 million a year business employing over 60 people.


There is a lot of talk about intelligent garbage solutions.Intelligent is great but simple and cost effective is better.



A stick and go solution for garbage collection. Stick it on, turn it on, and the sensor will send data on fill levels to a site you can access or to our smart garbage tracking solution. This will help reduce garbage collection costs and with the data collected, support municipalities to do better waste planning and develop a greener and a sustainable neighborhood.


Our sensors are about 30-50% lower in price than our competition and can be customized to your needs.


With BrighterBins you will get the garbage solution you need, not the one someone wants to sell you.
