About The Sensor Bins

  • The waste is segregated instantly at the origin.
  • Making Waste to Value a literal thing.
  • Zero Land Fill, that means no more polluting of land with garbage.
  • With community ownership people will understand the importance of waste segregation.
  • Both the environment and the health of the citizens will be protected.

With The Automatic Waste Mangement

The automatic sensor bins of Dharamshala are best in its class and are for the ease of its citizens to dispose of waste in a convenient way. The bins have a low-level design for throw-ins to ensure easy disposal to physically challenged people and children and have huge capacity that will reduce the operation cost as the garbage collectors will not have to come frequently to gather the garbage.

With the automatic underground garbage collection people won’t be exposed to garbage and its foul smell and it will also help the garbage collectors in managing the garbage easily and will ease of their problem of segregating it after collection in a big way. So, hats off to the Government of Himachal Pradesh that is doing a fantastic job in uplifting its small towns to an unbeatable level and is welcoming technological advancements with such enthusiasm.
