Bin-e optimizes waste management in any facility, allowing to save costs, time and labour. It ensures precisely sorted raw material through automatic recognition and segregation.

Even though, the need to re-use raw materials keeps increasing, only 29% of waste is recycled nowadays. Recycling guidelines are confusing for people to follow and waste management remains inefficient, it's not a data-driven process. Bin-e is an AI-based smart waste bin that aims to tackle these issues. It recognises, sorts and compresses the waste automatically. Thanks to the compression of plastic and paper the frequency of emptying the bins is reduced by half. The integrated app delivers real-time data that allows to optimize waste management operations. Bin-e is designed for offices and public places, enabling them to achieve efficiency in waste management and reach green strategy goals. It combines most advanced technology to simplify recycling and facilitate the transition to a circular economy.

Implementation Stories

Bin-e Waste Management System by Bin-e
Implemented by Ambilamp in Madrid (Spain) in 2021

Ambilamp aims to solve the problem of light waste sorting in Spain. The project, jointly developed by Bin-e and Ambilamp, started with the implementation of 20 units of smart waste bin in November 2021. The target was firstly on light bulbs sorting but fractions for e-waste, batteries and lamps were also developed as part of their cooperation with lighting companies. The contract, which is for multiple years, plans the implemen- tation of 400 units until 2024. The pilot phase ended successfully and the project is now in the implementation phase.


Automatic sorting precision expected is between 92% and 95%, plans to install 400 units by 2024


The environmental benefits

  • Bin-e sorts the waste with a precision of over 90%.
  • On a larger scale, Bin-e could optimize collection routes by optimizing collection routes and reducing CO2 emissions of waste transport.

The Financial benefits

  • In 120 000 m2 office space with a waste production of 15 000 m3 per year, Bin-e makes it possible to save up to €4.6M/year
