The Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) monitors the filling level of beach containers using the innovative SamclaCity-Waste system

The 40 beaches managed by AMB, and maintained by FCC Servicios Ciudadanos, are starting to incorporate sensors to monitor the waste container filling.

The SamclaCity-Waste telemanagement system, by means of remote devices incorporating ultrasonic sensors and innovative proprietary communication technology, enables real-time knowledge of container fill levels, optimisation of truck routes, reduction of carbon footprints, analysis of collection frequencies, citizen usage habits, etc.

The data obtained by the sensors are integrated in the software developed by Samcla itself, as well as in other management platforms developed by maintenance concession companies and in Smart City type platforms managed by the Public Bodies.
