Smart Waste Solutions – how big is the market?
The market for smart waste solutions and systems is really in it’s infancy in Australia and globally. It is expected to hugely increase over the next few years.
According to the study:
“The smart waste management market is expected to grow owing to the increasing number of smart city initiatives and strict government regulations. It is estimated to grow from USD 1.08 Billion in 2016 to USD 2.37 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.9%.”
The leading smart waste solutions players included in the report are:
Enevo provides sensor technology for bins and dumpsters to monitor how full a bin is, and to optimise the pickup schedule – this means that companies can cut costs on collections that are not required – and increase efficiency.

Conclusion on smart bins and smart waste solutions:
The smart waste solutions space is certainly very interesting with increasing options for boosting recycling through the usage of smart technology
We are certain that a number of these innovations will really take of in Australia – and will keep you posted on the outcome.
Smart Technology to reduce waste: many people perceive the waste collection industry (not so much the recycling industry (see recycling in Australia) as it has a more modern image) as quite old fashioned, not very technically or IT progressive and maybe not the quickest to adopt new practises.
In some ways this is actually true!
However – there are lots of progressive trends impacting the industry also – and Waster covers as many of these smart waste trends as we can in our regular blogs and articles on all things waste related.
In this blog we cover how the industry – both smart waste management and recycling – is becoming increasing data and analytics focused (technology to reduce waste) – and look at some of the more office based companies staking a claim in rubbish bins Sydney.
These sort of companies are changing the perception of what a garbage collection business is by applying technology to reduce waste!
Waster offers small and medium Australian companies (in all metro regions) an alternative to traditional rubbish bins Sydney collections – through flexible contracts, better services and low prices. Check out our bins and options online today by hitting the blue buttons at the top or bottom of this page.
We provide all waste and recycling services to small and medium businesses all across Australia – from grease trap cleaning to sanitary bins and of course general waste bin collections also.
Technology to reduce waste and landfill – if you can’t measure, you can’t improve!
The management guru Peter Drucker likes to say things like: “if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it”. Well if, there is one thing the waste industry has – is lots of things to measure and quite a few to improve.
In many ways, the industry of rubbish bins Sydney lends itself very well to analysis as it is basically 1000s of metric shaped bins containing various weights and types of rubbish, getting picked up a number of times each week. Waster of course provides collections of all standard Australian bin sizes – from 240 litre wheelie bins up to 4.5 cubic metre metal bins.
All across Australia – Waster and other waste management companies are collecting thousands and thousands of bins. This is exactly where the potential to analyse the data comes in.
Of course this waste can then be categorised as waste or recycling and we can even look at greenhouse gas emissions, number of truck trips or safety statistics. Basically a huge amount of data. See our blog on carbon neutral waste services.
With the growth in IT and technology – the ability to record and analyse this data is growing all the time. We can then use this data to suggest improvements and to gain insights.
Major corporates such as national chains i.e. think supermarket chains, major retail brands etc are demanding better data and information from their waste suppliers to ensure they are meeting financial and environmental targets and need technology to reduce waste.
We have seen numerous new entrants to the Australian waste and recycling market offering reporting and data solution technology to reduce waste costs and minimise environmental impacts.
Envizi – They can say it better than we can ” It gives you enterprise-wide visibility into your energy and sustainability performance, identifies patterns and prioritizes action so you can eliminate inefficiencies and forecast for the future. By transforming diverse and distributed data into actionable insights, Envizi empowers you to set new benchmarks, push into new territories and create greater value for your business.”
Panoglin Associates offers greenhouse gas emission services helping business reduce their carbon footprint and also achieving wider business efficiencies.
Energetics is also a Sydney based company offering reporting and data services in energy, carbon and related sectors.
All of these companies are third party businesses applying data analytics and number crunching support to both waste management and recycling companies and also companies that require waste services.
You will be seeing more and more data analysis in the waste and recycling sector and we will keep you updated.
What is the future of waste management and recycling?
Check out our video above – which asks some big questions about what waste management and recycling will look like in Australia in 2050.
We argue that waste will be hugely reduced – due to new technology to reduce waste such as 3d printing – and drone deliveries.
Analysis of data and continuing optimisations will of course also play a major part.
Whatever way you look at it – computer technology now means that everything is recorded – and with this information and data – we will find new ways to improve and optimise.
Smart recycling and waste collections for your business: garbage collection personnel in Australia have a certain image (and some would even say a serious image problem) – and every one has a different opinion on garbos and rubbish tips Melbourne. We officially launch our new corporate icon to really represent and capture smart recycling and smart waste services – Mr Waster today – to bring a new and fresh face to the Melbourne rubbish collection market.
How does Waster provide smart recycling solutions to our small and medium customers?
As you will hopefully be aware if you are reading our regular blogs on smart recycling solutions and methods to boost savings, Waster offers a real alternative to small and medium Australian businesses for Melbourne rubbish collection and all kinds of recycling.
We provide regular smart recycle bin services in all bin sizes from 240 litre up to 4.5m front lift services. As all our services are delivered on flexible 30 day agreements – you do not need to sign long term contracts or worry about hidden roll over clauses again.
Smart recycling services – Mr Waster provides a fresh faced approach to the industry
We are launching our new smart recycling icon and corporate mascot – Mr Waster today. Mr Waster will be taking part in our advertising and branding as we further develop our web presence and logo. He has been designed to be a helpful and personable face for our business. We believe that he will offer a helpful and informative personality to help and encourage customers and the general public to boost recycling, help the environment and commit to high quality customer service.
Our intention is to continue to grow our social media presence and continue to pursue an educational and content marketing approach to waste services and environmental management. This will help us continue to provide informative blogs such as rubbish bins and Sydney landfill – whether landfilling is worse than composting of organic waste.
One thing we have really noticed on social media in the last year – is that more and more people are really interested in smart recycling solutions and methods to decrease plastic usage (and particularly single use plastic) – such as straws, plastic bags etc.
It is very encouraging – knowing that many Australians are fully behind efforts to help the environment and protect our beautiful waterways and seas.
We have many ambitious smart recycling plans for Mr Waster – that will help kids be interested in smart recycling and protecting the environment – this will include computer games and cartoons with environmental themes. We of course would look forward to hearing your feedback on where you would like the character to be used and any good ideas. See our recent blog on recycling Melbourne.
We will also be putting a lot more focus on recycling video content in 2019 – as we believe it can really help get the message across.
We hope that Mr Waster can boost interest in smart recycling solutions – and encourage more people to make the right choice. We always say – making a conscious decision to not use plastic whenever possible is extremely important – that is the true smart recycling!
Smart waste collection
Smart waste collection: at Waster we pride ourselves on offering smart waste collection (smarter than other garbage bin companies) – in fact our tag line is “waste services for smart businesses”. We like to promote recycling and environmental performance in our customers as this is the best way to reduce costs and of course also help the environment. As any good doctor will tell you – prevention is better than cure – and the EPA promotes the same methodology.
The EPA waste hierarchy is
- avoidance including action to reduce the amount of waste generated by households, industry and all levels of government
- resource recovery including re-use, recycling, reprocessing and energy recovery, consistent with the most efficient use of the recovered resources
- disposal including management of all disposal options in the most environmentally responsible manner.
Waster offers a real alternative to small and medium Australian businesses – we provide all waste and recycling services such as general waste, grease trap cleaning and all recycling services. You can check out your prices and services online by pressing the blue button below:
Smart waste collection – preventing pollution and waste at source!
A recent article on the BBC Future website – explained how new approaches are making manufacturing of smartphones much more environmentally friendly. This is a good thing – because up to now – mining of rare earths has not been very friendly to the environment.
“The fundamental material your smartphone is made of probably came from one mine in China. The Bayan Obo mine produces more than 95% of the world’s rare earth elements; the uniquely multivalent metals that make your phone ‘smart’. Lanthanum, for example, gives smartphone screens their smoothness and colour pop; neodymium’s super-high magnetism puts microphones, speakers and vibration units all in the palm of our hands. But to have such a luxury has come at a heavy environmental cost.”
The BBC reports that: “China’s dominance in this market is less about geology “and far more about the country’s willingness to take an environmental hit that other nations shy away from.” It’s a concern prompting governments to ask: is there a more eco-friendly way to satiate the world’s tech lust?”
Researchers at Cambridge University – are exploring new ways to access the rare earths – that will be better for the environment.
The team have already spotted potential in Greenland, western Australia and Madagascar where they’ll be undertaking surveys, but the search for REEs won’t stop there. “One thing we don’t do very well is recycling REEs from redundant technology. As the amounts used in any individual gadget are tiny, it’s considered uneconomic. But maybe this will change.””
It will be great news to resuse old electronic components and reduce waste further.
