About us

Nordsense has created a complete end to end solution that optimizes waste collection processes by monitoring container levels, applying advanced data analytics and delivering a event-driven turn-by-turn navigation for waste collection. For the first time, Nordsense makes it easy and cost-effective to deploy a smart waste solution at large scale, enabling cities, waste operators, and waste haulers to perform waste operations much more efficiently. This provides a positive environmental impact by reducing the number of vehicles on the road and their fuel consumption, as well as the benefit of preventing unattractive and unhealthful overflowing bins.
