The garbage in trash cans overflows if not emptied out by the garbage haulers in a timely manner. Garbage haulers have to check every trash bin individually to determine whether it is full or not. A Danish startup, Nordsense has figured out a way to solve this issue with a device based on laser technology which offers to alert the garbage haulers when the trash cans are about to overflow.

Trash talking goes high-tech in San Francisco

San Francisco’s trash bins get smart
Starting this spring, 1,000 trash bins in San Francisco will be fitted with smart sensors that can detect how full they are. Optical sensors that will be mounted in the bins are part of a system that can track and learn from patterns of activity in the bins. The city can then use that information to make decisions on where to place the bins, when trash collectors should empty them and where recycling options might be needed.
