The BinSense solution to the recycling crisis was inspired from gas detection requirements on board submarines and the international space station.

It's exciting to be leading the implementation of the BinSense sensor, as it is a real solution to the problem of recycling materials being sent to landfill. It gives me pleasure to enable every council the opportunity of diverting its recycling - away from landfill - to being repurposed. As it should be.
