The public now has a new web app to help improve the environment, where GreenPak said, they can find their nearest iBiN location via a Google Map interface using NB-IoT Technology powered by Vodafone Malta.
To check out where your nearest iBINs are in Gozo please click here.
The app works on any mobile device such as smartphones, tablets, portable computers and others and the idea is if in case the closest one to you happens to be full, the app then automatically directs you to the nearest available iBiNs.
Since early January 2019, GreenPak said that the app has been tried and tested among a closed group of 300 persons throughout the islands.
“iBiNs, the smart recycling bins that read the content of waste disposed inside them, have gained quick public acceptance with a noted dramatic increase in the collection of recyclable paper, glass, metal and plastics when compared with the same quarter last year,” the Cooperative Society said
As from this year, iBiNs have replaced all the previous recycling skips in 42 localities served by GreenPak. Equipped with smart technology, it said that iBiNs enable citizens to recycle 24/7 in a simpler and more convenient way, while doing away with the unsightly overflowing of recycling bins.
GreenPak explained that the recently installed iBiNs across Malta and Gozo have “doubled the collection of plastic waste.”
It added that concurrently, the new system has led to a 23% reduction of trips by collection trucks, reducing vehicle emissions in the process.
