Duemmegi offers solutions for the automated and optimized management of several aspects relating to waste disposal areas and waste recycling centers. Specifically, a domotic system makes it possible to:
Enable citizens access using their own identification card, such as the National Service Card (CNS). . In Italy the CNS is a card already used by each resident, as it contains tax and health data of the holder and is a document required to access numerous services of the public administration, including the delivery of waste to the designated recycling areas in their municipality. Whether you have a similar ID card in your country or not, we can work out together the best solution that suits your needs!
Automatically regulate entrances to the area based on a set schedule (also based on user type) and by municipality, excluding nonresidents if they are not authorized to drop off at the site.
Monitor collection areas through video surveillance systems, also integrating third-party systems.
Three Things to Know About the Future of Domotics for Waste Disposal Areas
IIn the near future, domotic systems will play a central role in waste management. We will live in smart cities built around the circular economy model, and waste areas will be part of this transformation. The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) has presented a Smart Waste Collection System based on the Internet of Things (IoT). Here’s what we could also see in our country very soon:
Smart dumpsters with fill sensors that will optimize the waste collection system since each urban area does not produce the same amount of waste every day.
Monitoring of collection facilities to adapt them to the actual needs, including differentiation between waste produced by private users and by other activities, e.g., restaurants.
Actions recognition to track user behavior and monitor the amount of sorted waste.
Automation will enable the integrated management of all these functions (which now seem to belong to a not-so-near future), contributing significantly to optimizing the entire waste collection and management process and the associated cost for the benefit of the municipalities that implement the system.
The immediate availability of the collected data will make it possible to eliminate unnecessary collection costs and at the same time improve service by enhancing it where it is needed, reducing wasted resources, environmental pollution, and the collection of non-recyclables.
Smart Domotics for Waste Disposal Areas Make Life Easier
Like it or not, waste collection or recycling areas are an important reality of our cities. They already provide optimized access and management of site lighting and video surveillance systems (which must be monitored by law). It’s a significant first step toward environmentally sustainable cities and the circular economy.
According to ultimate data from ISPRA – the Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research – in 2021 each Italian citizen generated an average of 488 kilograms of waste. Output was highest in the North and lowest in the Center and South. Regardless of regional differences, however, per capita waste production remains high, and the need to monitor and optimize collection and delivery, while also rewarding the most conscientious citizens or municipalities, is therefore key. Smart Domotics can also make life easier in terms of the management of waste disposal areas.
Domotics means easier management through the application of interconnected technologies, so the paradigm of “more efficiency and less waste = less environmental impact” is easily applicable to waste collection centers, even with the technology currently available. Hopefully, in the near future, waste management will finally become smart.
