Leading security and innovative services provider Guardforce has launched a cutting-edge waste management solution, Smart Bins, making use of sensors and integrated technology to maximise rubbish bin capacity and enhance waste collection efficiency and safety. Tailored for waste bin management in public and private facilities with heavy human traffic, the technology-driven solution can ultimately reduce the frequency of waste collection, thus contributing to easing traffic and mitigating road-side emissions and fuel consumption, in support of Hong Kong’s Smart City ideals.
The bin will be displayed at Building 5W of Hong Kong Science Park (near the shuttle bus stop) from late January, and will be rolled out throughout the city in 2019.
Guardforce Group CEO Mr Terence Yap said: “Guardforce has been at the forefront of taking security services high tech as we strive to secure the present and innovate for the future. The Smart Bin is our latest endeavour to leverage technology to make our environment and our city highly liveable. The solution will help the city tackle the nagging issue of managing waste bins. With our solution, we hope to eliminate the problem of overflowing waste bins and fire hazards posed by waste bins, while optimising the efficiency of waste collection and disposal.”
Guardforce’s Smart Bins solution is integrated with cloud-based software and the latest Internet of Things (IoT) sensors to detect the condition of the bins at any time and maintain optimal hygiene and safety for users and facilities.
There are four key elements that set Guardforce Smart Bins apart, namely:
The Smart Bin is ideal for heavy human traffic locations such as campuses, theme parks, airports, railway stations and shopping malls.
“Managing our waste in a smarter manner is very important to the quality of our daily lives, and Guardforce, a pioneer of innovative smart city solutions, is contributing to improving waste management with Smart Bins,” said Mr Terence Yap. “No matter how you look at them, Smart Bins make sense, and could be a real boon not just to smart cities as a whole, but to all stakeholders in waste management, be it service providers, public and private enterprises and environmental groups. Smart Bins help to create a cleaner, safer, more hygienic environment and enhanced operational efficiency, while reducing management costs, resources and road-side emissions,” he added.
