Droitwich, UK based bin manufacturer, Egbert Taylor Group, has teamed up with Irish firm, SmartBin Ltd, in a strategic partnership in which Taylor has become SmartBin’s sole UK distributor of intelligent monitoring systems on all large four-wheel metal containers.

SmartBin specialises in ultrasonic fill-level sensor monitoring, which is said to enable waste collectors, local authorities and recycling companies to significantly optimise their collection routes and operations by understanding when their bins need emptying and the bins’ levels and current location at any given time.

The sensor technology is claimed to provide accurate real time insight into waste collection routes by communicating with field collection operatives when the bins and stations require emptying – thus helping waste collectors to save significant time and cost resources.

According to Taylor, intelligent smart technology underpins each of the SmartBin sensors, which can easily be retrofitted to existing bins and containers.

The Egbert Taylor Group said that its latest partnership with the smart monitoring firm will enable its entire product portfolio, from its 1100L Continental bin to Sellers’ range of skips and containers, to become ‘smart’ units on request.

“The world of waste collection has considerably evolved from when Taylor first opened its doors over five decades ago,” commented Brendan Murphy, CEO of the Egbert Taylor Group.

“Not only do manufacturers such as the Egbert Taylor Group need to evolve with the sector but we also need to play a role in shaping it.,” he continued.

SmartBin, which has offices in Dublin, Boston, London and Australia, launched in 2010 and has since received industry awards for its ability to reduce overfilling and help organisations streamline their waste collection strategies.

“SmartBin was created with the primary objective of adding value to the day-to-day operations of those who adopted the technology,” explained SmartBin’s CEO, Brendan Walsh.

“We now expect to add value to the Egbert Taylor Group by providing the opportunity for local authorities and other organisations to transform their standard bins into smart bins whilst adding value to the SmartBin brand,” he added.

Taylor said that the partnership is expected to boost its presence in the UK whilst adding value to its diverse suite of products.

“As demand 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,” concluded Murphy.
