Commercial waste charge

Birmingham City Council has started to roll out a fleet of high-tech vehicles that will enable it to charge its commercial waste customers by weight.

The 16-truck fleet will have the latest technology in bin identification and weighing systems, supplied by Moba. This will allow the council to precisely identify each bin loaded and accurately weigh it without any disruption to the operation of the collection process.

Ian Lewis, Moba UK general manager, said: “Bin weight measurement will allow councils to manage their customers more closely and eliminate the overloading of bins.

“It will also allow them to have more meaningful conversations with commercial customers about waste services better suited to their needs or, better still, to provide practical help to reduce the amount of waste they throw.”
