System for pay-by weight

Norfolk-based waste management provider Norse Waste Solutions has equipped its fleet of RCVs with the Enviroweigh bin weigher from Vehicle Weighing Solutions (VWS) and tagged its bins with radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips to monitor collections and help customers improve their recycling efficiency.

The RFID tags enable the bin-weighing system sensor to identify what is being collected and from whom. The data is then taken from the vehicle via SD card or transmitted over a phone network, and the files are dropped into a report for analysis.

Organisations can determine the precise weight outputs for different areas or departments, as well as those with the best recycling rates.

The weights and measures-approved system allows Norse to offer pay-by-weight services. The company collects dry mixed recyclables, food and glass for recycling. Black bag waste is taken through a refuse-derived fuel process, which recovers all but 10%, for use as fuel for power generation.
