Wallonie Plus Propre started a pilot project and that will last one year and will be conducted simultaneously in 4 cities and Walloon municipalities (Namur, Juprelle and Les-Bons-Villers, and La Calamine).
The project plans to track 500 garbage cabs for a year, starting with 1 out of 10, in order to allow to follow the evolution of their filling. The information is sent to the person in charge of the garbage collection and an application maps the situation, enabling efficient management. The municipality knows at any time what is the filling rate of its bins. It can thus adapt its collection frequency, organize its tours differently, change the number and location of some bins or even replace some damaged bins. No more problems because filling speed of cans are radically different depending on the location, the time of year or occasional events.
