Congratulations to Waverley Municipal Council for being selected project winner for government category of the inaugural Australian IoT Awards 2017! Check out all the winners, here.
The IoT project entry "Bondi’s new solar bins – Litter prevention powered by the sun" is top ranking in the Government caterogy with their "network of [Bigbelly] internet-connected smart bins that automatically compact internal garbage and send alerts via SMS and email when they’re full." Story originally published on IoT Hub Australia:
Connected rubbish bins have quickly gained popularity as a smart city application, and Waverley Council has deemed the technology worthy of Australia’s most iconic beach.
Spread across Bondi Beach and Bondi Junction, 42 [Bigbelly] solar-powered smart bins supplied by Solar Bins Australia have been deployed, marking it as the largest council fleet of the bins in the country.
