Smart Bins

No matter which way you look at it,  smart waste management systems are the smart way to keep our cities clean.  The smart bin, with its intelligent waste monitoring and rubbish compacting technologies, is leaps and bounds above the traditional rubbish bin and can only improve the environment for us all.

  • A standard rubbish bin can overflow and stay that way for some time – a smart bin doesn’t.
  • A standard rubbish bin smells – a smart bin doesn’t.
  • A standard rubbish bin is usually emptied on a set schedule – a smart bin isn’t.
  • A standard rubbish bin…well I’m sure you get our point here.

Smart bins need emptying less often which means that the air pollution caused by rubbish trucks is reduced, petrol or diesel use is reduced and traffic congestion is less.  That’s a win for the planet and all of us.

Managing our waste in a smarter way is the way to go for smarter cities.

Smart City Manager

Smart City have partnered with Mr. Fill, the new solution for refuse collection in smarter cities. Mr. Fill cuts refuse collection costs while reducing litter, all thanks to smart solar-powered technology. The status of the solar-powered waste containers is communicated numerous times a day using the Smart City Manager, which results in more efficient refuse collection at a lower cost. The Smart City Manager is a management and monitoring system that registers the status and usage data of your waste container and sends the information to your employees when emptying is required.

The solar powered compacting smart bin is available in two sizes – 120L and 240L. Made with 2mm high-quality powder coated (containing extremely high-quality iron) steel, the bin can be produced in every colour.  And the entire process – from A to Z – is all done in-house.


The bins have a compacting force of 600kg. This means that regardless of what type of rubbish is in the bin, a compaction ratio of one fifth to one seventh of its size is achieved. Or, in layman’s terms, the bin needs to be emptied five to seven times less often than a standard bin.

Solar Panels

With the solar panel placed at a 10 degree angle no rubbish can be placed on it and it is at the best angle to capture the sun.  The polycarbonate protection plate plays two roles. Firstly it prevents discoloration of the solar panel but most importantly it ensures that the solar panel is resistant to vandalism.


Equipped with 24/7 LED lighting, smart bins are easily identifiable in the dark.  They can also indicate how full the bin is, show a logo and have a personalised display encouraging use of the bin.


Most of us know how to deal with rubbish but some may need a gentle reminder.  Or you might just want to thank people for doing the right thing.  The sound module allows you to have a personalised message to the public – so you can encourage people to use the bin or thank them for doing so.


Practicality of use with the smart bin is covered from top to bottom and in between.

The sturdy bin cover is made of type 316 stainless steel which is ideal for all types of weather and is resistant to waste acids.  Because the lid is on the side and opens down, the lid doesn’t get jammed by the flow of rubbish in the bin.  The cover automatically locks when the bin is full but it can also be locked via our smart bin technology remotely for large scale events.

The integrated ashtray allows for cigarette butts to be collected separately thereby preventing fire hazards. With a removeable compartment on the inside to ensure easy cleaning, the ashtray is flush with the door preventing water from running inside it.

The galvanised foot pedal allows the bin to be opened without having to touch the cover and will automatically close once the foot pedal has been released.  In times like we are living in not touching the bin helps reduce the spread of infection.
