Sensor for Smart Waste Solutions


Quamtra is a bin monitoring solution that facilitates smart waste management through the provision of real-time information, allowing councils and waste management organisations to optimise efficiency and implement on-demand route collection. 


  • Volumetric Measurement
  • Temperature Measurement
  • GPS (optional)
  • Motion Sensor
  • Remote Configuration
  • Real-time Alarm Generation

How it Works

The sensors are installed within bins or containers.  The sensor data is transmitted to a software platform for reporting of historical and real-time data for intuitive interpretation.  Graphics, reports and alerts provide a clearer understanding of citizens’ behaviour patterns and provide valuable information such as truck routes and bin fill levels to support effective decision making and to help increase efficiency.


Quamtra sensors optimise waste collection routes which helps to reduce operating costs by eliminating unnecessary stops or journeys to remote areas. The resulting benefits include:

  • reduced fuel consumption
  • emissions reduction
  • lower road congestion
  • cleaner cities


Monitor all Types of Waste

From Solid to Liquid

  • Water
  • Textiles
  • Plastics
  • Glass
  • Organic
  • Oil
  • Lubricants

The sensors have been installed in over 30 container types. Working with a configurable measurement angle means that the device can be installed using a mounting plate, making it highly adaptable, and suitable for all currently available container models.

Councils and waste organisations can adopt this solution for:

  • Public bins
  • Residential bins
  • Community bins
  • Charity bins
  • Event bins

Volumetric sensing + sudden movement sensing combine to indicate collection status, helping to ensure quality service is maintained.

10 YEAR BATTERY LIFE - High Quality Lithium Cell

The replaceable battery lasts approximately 10 years, depending on the configurable measurement frequency and data transference.


The sensor is SigFox certified and there is also a LoraWan compatible version.


Virtual Quamtra is the non-sensorised version of the Quamtra solution, which does not require a MiniQ sensor to be installed in the container.

The end-user of the collection service is provided with a mobile app where the ‘full container’ status can be selected as required and the council is duly notified. In other words, the app transmits the information rather than the sensor.
