Sensoneo smart waste monitoring solution will be implemented in Madrid in what is the largest smart waste installation in Europe. More than 11 000 sensors will be installed in bins with light packaging, textile, glass, organic and general waste, with data being sent to the Smart Waste Management Software System and utilized also in optimized route planning.

The smart waste solution will be deployed in cooperation with the local partner Candam, as part of the waste collection service contract for the city of Madrid with Valoriza, Acciona and OHL Ingesan.

The installation of sensors will start in the first quarter of 2023. The smart waste implementation is a part of Madrid’s strategy of transforming into a benchmark Smart City. The main reason behind utilizing smart sensors is to bring more efficiency into waste collection services, while also reducing emissions, traffic, and noise. Other benefits of smart waste monitoring are fuel and cost savings and reducing time necessary for waste collection.

Smart sensors deployments in Europe typically range in hundreds, or a few thousand units. The largest installation of Sensoneo sensors (and one of the biggest smart waste projects in Latin America as well) was in Buenos Aires and covered 4 500 sensors.
