Bin Sensors for Collection Management

    Hi everyone!

    I'm looking to support my public operations manager and her collection crew in organizing their collection routes using bin sensors. Essentially, these sensors are installed on the waste/recycling bins and relay information onto a computer software program about how much material is in the bin. These would be very helpful in creating a daily collection route, as our crew wouldn't have to travel across town to pick up an empty bin.

    I've done some research and found some companies that produce these sensors, but I'm having trouble with finding consumer reviews or recommendations. Does anyone have any insight on which companies produce quality bin sensors?

    Thanks.
    Evan
