The Changing Face of Waste Management

The growing need for sustainable waste management is evident as the world faces the challenges of increasing population, rapid urbanisation, and environmental concerns. Traditional waste management systems have proven to be inefficient and unsustainable, resulting in overflowing bins, inadequate waste sorting, and escalating transportation costs.
Traditional waste management systems are indeed failing as statistics show that only 12% of waste is recycled or composted globally, while the remaining 88% ends up in landfills or as litter. This highlights the need for alternative approaches, such as circular economy strategies, that prioritise waste reduction and reuse.
Traditional Waste Bin
At PLAEX Technologies, we understand the urgency to revolutionise waste management practices and address these issues head-on. That's why we have developed Garby, our innovative smart bin that is reshaping the industry and redefining sustainability.
Garby is more than just a smart bin - it represents a fundamental shift towards intelligent waste management solutions. With advanced sensors, AI-powered object recognition, and data analytics capabilities, Garby optimises waste collection processes, promotes proper waste sorting, and minimises environmental impact.
One of the key benefits of Garby is its ability to optimise waste collection routes. Traditional waste collection routes are often inefficient, resulting in unnecessary trips and increased carbon emissions. However, Garby's fill-level sensors constantly monitor waste levels, providing real-time data that enables waste management authorities to optimise collection routes based on actual demand.
Traditional bins have several limitations that can lead to inefficiencies in waste collection routes. According to recent studies, around 30% of waste bins are emptied when they are less than 50% full. This leads to unnecessary trips and wasted resources.
Moreover, as much as 40% of waste bins overflow before they are collected, causing litter and environmental hazards. These inefficiencies result in increased carbon emissions, as waste collection vehicles have to make more trips than necessary. Traditional bins lack real-time data on fill levels, making it difficult for waste management authorities to optimize collection routes based on actual demand.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to optimise waste collection, promote proper waste sorting, and minimise environmental impact. Take action today and schedule a meeting to discover how Garby can transform your waste management processes.

Garby, the smart bin developed by PLAEX Technologies, is revolutionising waste collection and management processes. Equipped with advanced sensors and intelligent technology, Garby and Garfill accurately detects and monitors trash levels in real-time.
With Garby, optimised trash pickup schedules, reducing fuel consumption and improving overall waste management efficiency. It plays a crucial role in building a more sustainable future by promoting conscious waste management habits.
Garby - PLAEX Technologies
Garcia, another innovative technology by PLAEX Technologies, is a garbage detector aimed at enhancing waste sorting processes. Utilising advanced sensors and AI-powered object recognition, Garcia can accurately identify various types of waste. It teaches users where to throw their waste away, as the lights that flash based on the object indicates which colored bin it belongs in.
This enables efficient separation of recyclable materials from general waste, increasing recycling rates and reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. With Garcia, waste management systems can streamline operations and contribute to a more sustainable circular economy.

Garfill - PLAEX Technologies
Garfill, the garbage fill sensor, is another groundbreaking solution for waste disposal developed. It also prevents waste from accumulating in landfills. Garfill gathers data on the fill level of your bins and transmits it to a customised online dashboard to aid in efficient and data-driven waste pickups. This device can be utilised with various bin sizes and is equipped with a durable battery and a mini solar panel.
At PLAEX Technologies, we offer a range of innovative waste management technologies that can help optimise your waste collection and disposal processes. Book a meeting with us today to explore these cutting-edge solutions and take your waste management practices to the next level.

How do Smart Bins Work?

Cross Contamination of Waste in Landfills
At the forefront of waste management innovation, smart bins like Garby are changing the way we approach waste collection and disposal. These intelligent bins incorporate advanced technologies to streamline processes and promote sustainability.
So, how exactly do these smart bins work?
Smart bins are equipped with sensors and other technologies that enable them to collect data on the amount and types of waste being deposited in the bin. These sensors can include weight sensors, fill-level sensors, and even cameras for visual recognition.
The collected data is transmitted in real-time to a central system, which allows waste management authorities or companies to monitor the fill level of the bins. This monitoring helps in efficient waste collection planning and optimization of waste disposal routes.
Almost no other smart bin incorporates advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning to automatically sort recyclables from general waste. These systems use image recognition or optical sensors to identify and separate different types of waste materials.
When a smart bin reaches its predefined capacity or requires maintenance, it can send notifications and alerts to waste management personnel. This ensures timely collection, prevents overflow, and allows for prompt maintenance.
Smart bins can be integrated with broader waste management systems, allowing for centralised control, data analysis, and reporting. This integration provides a holistic view of waste management operations, facilitates data-driven decision-making, and improves overall efficiency.
