Egbert Taylor invests in developing its waste technology platform

Egbert Taylor has begun 2017 by announcing its commitment to further business-to-business collaborations as part of its drive to become a 360-degree solutions provider and enable its customers to make their waste budgets work harder.

The Droitwich-based firm is welcoming discussions with innovative companies that wish to add value to the processes of waste collection and play a role in developing and shaping waste collection strategies of tomorrow.

The move, which builds on a successful 2016 that saw Egbert Taylor successfully integrate innovative and internationally-renowned brands within its growing waste solutions portfolio, comes as netBin is announced as the Group’s latest partner.

netBin, one of the products developed by FarSite Communications, is a web-based application that enables its users to develop efficient waste collection routes and base resource decisions on data created through its sensor technology.

From individual containers’ fill level and location to their temperature and usage statistics, netBin provides its users with full visibility over an entire fleet, regardless of the bin, container type or size. It can also play a key role in preventing misuse, reducing risks such as fires and ensuring that traditional bins never become overfull and are only emptied when full, increasing the efficiency of waste handling fleets.

“The world of waste has irrevocably changed and there are now more ways in which technology can have a long-lasting and positive impact on the process of waste collection and management. As part of Egbert Taylor’s commitment to delivering a 360-degree approach to waste collection, we want to be the best at integrating technology within traditional products to deliver efficiencies. To achieve this, collaboration is key and we are open to establishing meaningful partnerships with those who can provide added value and who feel that they could create value from working with us. It’s an incredibly exciting time for the waste industry and we’re committed to playing a role in shaping the waste collection techniques and practices of the future.”

Egbert Taylor is successful at integrating new technology with traditional containers and its exclusive distribution agreements with Bigbelly, combined with its well-established distribution network, has transformed the firm from traditional manufacturer to market innovator.

Steve Scott, Chairman at FarSite Communications, adds: “The Internet of Things is becoming increasingly important with regards to improving business efficiency. Whilst the digital age of connecting things is still in its infancy, Egbert Taylor has been quick to establish that the value generated when combining traditional containers with new technology is greater than the sum of its parts. Being able to take any container, from traditional bins to textile banks, and make them intelligent waste assets is a huge step forward for the waste industry and we look forward to sharing Egbert Taylor’s vision going forwards.”
