Each bin has its own unique number. This number is the foundation for connecting other data and information to the bin. Other data can be RFID, position, size, fraction, collection frequency, owner and subscriber etc. When the bin is placed at the subscriber this data can be collected with a handheld computer. The information is then transferred to the database of the municipality.

Information about the bin is printed on a label and attached to the bin. The unique bin number (as a barcode) is always on the label, together with other information of the customer’s choice such as size, fraction, cadastral or address and sometimes also contact information to customer service.

When the bin is placed at the pick-up point, the RFID-tag, position and bin number (barcode) is recorded on a handheld device.

After the registration of the bin, the main reason of the label is to display which customer the bin belongs to. If several bins are located next to each other, it will be easy to locate your own bin by this label.

Now when the registration process is done, the RFID tag is used to identify the bin. This is done automatically during collection with the on-vehicle mounted RFID equipment.
