Egbert Taylor Group has become sole UK distributor of SmartBin’s intelligent monitoring systems for waste containers.
SmartBin uses ultrasonic fill-level sensor monitoring, which sends messages to operators when bins need to be emptied.
The Irish company’s sensor technology can be retrofitted to existing bins and containers. Egbert Taylor intends to use this make its entire product range ‘smart’ on request from clients.
Chief executive Brendan Murphy, pictured, said: “As demand grows from private and public sector organisations to become more efficient and sustainable, our alliance with SmartBin will enable those who already have an established fleet of bins and containers to ‘upgrade’ their stock and benefit from significant cost and efficiency savings.”
Egbert Taylor also handles UK sales for US firm Bigbelly’s range of intelligent bins, which run on solar power and offer both monitoring and compaction.
