Our Smart Bin solution uses IoT and process automation technology to simplify the issue of eWaste collection and disposal. The smart bin is equipped with an IoT sensor that monitors fill levels, and when the bin is full, it engages a fully automated process (via Fujitsu’s Run MY Process automation engine) that retrieves a job number from our eWaste processing partner and books its own collection job with a courier. It’s a completely self-managing solution that makes disposal of eWaste simple and convenient – and in the last 12 months we used them to divert more than 3 tonnes of eWaste from landfill from customer and Fujitsu sites.
The Smart Bin was a finalist at the 2018 Australian IoT Awards and has been featured as a case study showing the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals on the Australian SDG website as well as the Global eSustainability Initiative (GeSI) website. Fujitsu’s Smart eWaste bin solution delivers on SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production through demonstrating how technology can assist with waste diversion from landfill.
