Checking Bins Have Been Emptied

Birmingham City Council is one of the UK pioneers of bins with RFID and are users of MGB RFID tagged bins. Birmingham consider that the equipping bins with RFID is helping them towards their target of reducing refuse collection costs by £3 million a year.

Bins With RFID Help Distribution Services

MGB Plastics is using low frequency RFID tags. These also allow them to offer distribution of bins direct to households. The service means that Councils do not have to hold stocks of bins locally. CoreRFID can also provide UHF and high frequency tags for similar applications.
