New in Jerusalem: Electronic signage will show the occupancy of garbage cans

The Jerusalem Municipality recently launched a new pilot program, in which a sensor transmits data on garbage bin occupancy to electronic signage placed in locations where there are several hidden bins. This way you can know which bin is available and where to throw the rubbish.

The new experimental signage was recently installed in the Har Nof neighborhood and on French Hill in the city. As part of the experiment, residents will be able to know the occupancy of the existing bins and what is the available bin into which the garbage can be thrown.

The municipality said that the goal of the program is to reduce the amount of garbage thrown in the bins and make the process easier for the residents. Already today, the data is transferred from the smart volume detectors installed in the bins embedded in dedicated tablets, which are located in the garbage collection trucks, and help optimize the garbage collection processes on a daily basis.

The municipality says that this step is being carried out as part of the cleaning revolution going on in the city, led by Mayor Moshe Leon, who places special emphasis on the cleanliness of the city and the visibility of the public space. This is after for years Jerusalem in particular became notorious as one of the dirtiest cities in Israel.

Leon himself said that “the new pilot is another tool in the framework of the cleaning reform. Jerusalem is clean in practice, with advanced tools and with great attention.” We will continue to work for the improvement of public space and visibility, for the benefit of all city residents and gates.
