Nando is a simple plug-and-play solution that makes any bin smart, providing valuable insights about your waste. Whether you’re a print shop or a commercial office, Nando helps you track your waste.

Nando’s smart technology hosts a plethora of benefits that can help you:

  • Drastically reduce waste contamination
  • Help you achieve your environmental goals
  • Slash waste processing costs
  • Streamline your waste disposal processes
  • Spark positive change and build a greener community

Nando sensors are specifically designed to fit seamlessly into your existing bins without hindering bag removal or emptying operations. This is rigorously tested and confirmed during installation at all monitoring locations.

Unlike some sensors, ours require a connection to the existing electrical grid for reliable operation. During our installation process, we’ll assess the distance between your bins and existing power outlets to determine the best solution.

Rest assured, your data is safe and sound! Nando Eye and Sensor use their own dedicated private network to transmit data directly to servers, completely separate from your WiFi network.

Upon detection of sensor malfunction, our diagnostic system immediately sends an alert to the technical team.

Our technical experts will promptly address the issue, either remotely or by arranging a in person visit to the customer’s site if necessary, to replace the damaged equipment.
