SAIL has rolled out stainless steel smart garbage bins, which will display signals to the collection vehicle about the ‘fill-up’ position.

 
A smart garbage station will be set up at Bhikaji Cama Place, which is being developed by SDMC (South Delhi Municipal Corporation). Environment friendly garbage bins made of SAIL SALEM stainless steel will be installed in the underground RCC pits in this smart garbage station, which will not only collect unbridled garbage of the city, but will also save people from stink and diseases.
 
Smart garbage stations with bins developed by SAIL will not only give a smart look but will also help to promote Clean India initiative. SAIL will also supply stainless steel garbage bins to another smart garbage station being developed in North Delhi by North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) at Kamala Nagar.
 
In the smart garbage stations, there will be a RCC pit in which the stainless steel bins will be placed. There will be separate bins for recyclable wastes and non-recyclable wastes. Since the bins will be placed under ground, the pit will be covered with a pit cover fabricated out of stainless steel slip free sheets. Suitable openings will be kept on the pit cover through which the sanitation crew can dump the collected garbage into the stainless steel bins placed underground.
 
It is planned to have IoT (Internet of Things) enabled Gazelle sensors on the pit cover which will transmit the signals to the collection vehicle. The compactor will lift the bins from the underground pits and empty the garbage into the compactor vehicle.
 
SAIL is looking out for other municipalities to take this initiative further ahead. Depending up on the response, SAIL may take up production of stainless steel garbage bins on a commercial scale also.
