Challenges for municipal and industrial waste management

Reduce running costs

Collection routes must be optimised to save both time and fuel consumption. Bins must also be chipped to avoid missed collections. Bin level sensors will also ensure that bins are emptied only when needed.


Only with a BSI-certified identification system can collection data, such as the its owner, the weight and emptying date, can be legally recorded and documented.

Precise weight monitoring

You cannot measure bin weight directly and precisely without on-board scales. Once you can measure weight you can then generate accurate data to help customers manage their waste better.


Optimised routing will also help fleet managers reduce their carbon footprint through fewer road miles and more efficient bin collections.


Bin weighing data can help you understand if additional recycling bins are required. Pay-as-you-throw pricing also provides customers an incentive to throw less and recycle more.


Improve the accuracy of your invoicing with confirmed collection data and accurate bin weighing. This will also provide you with additional possibilities to bill, for example, by left or by weight.

INTELLIGENT Technologies


MOBA is developing a suite of products and technologies that will form a network for data collection and management for Smart Cities.

With these solutions, cities will have access to a new form of intelligence that links systems more efficiently and improves the user experience of urban space, thus enabling the optimised use of resources.


Mobile Weighing Systems

Exact weight detection directly at the vehicle

With more than 40 years of experience in the development and manufacture of mobile weighing technology, our new generation of mobile weighing systems provides waste management and logistics companies with even more flexibility. Our modular system enables customers can rapidly exchange, or upgrade, system components, allowing them to scale as they require.

System Advantages

  • Time savings though short weighing times
  • Legally compliant billing on-site
  • Extraordinary robustness thanks to vibration resistant, potted technology
  • Easily upgradeable to RFID or route & telematics solution
  • Exceptionally configurable with a modular set of features

Loading the correct weight accurately



The quick and simple identification of waste containers optimises the collection process and offers significant advantages for both municipalities and waste management companies. This facilitates more flexible charging methods, prevents the lifting of black-listed bins and provides a definitive record of collection. The increased transparency of the disposal process will also save considerable time since it enables more efficient route optimisation and, through exception reporting, allows the customer services department to be more proactive.

System Advantages

  • Transparent waste collection process
  • Opportunities to intervene via blocking lists, etc.
  • Tour and performance optimisation
  • Improved service due to prompt access to information
  • Option to tailor billing according to individual container provision
  • More flexibility since the system remains anytime upgradeable thanks to the open CANbus interface

More profit for commercial waste disposal


Pay-as-you-throw garbage fees for residential and industrial waste



With our routing and telematics solution, many other functions can be realised which will optimise collections and delivery tours. This not only saves times and cost, but also maximises the vehicle’s load capacity. The system allows direct communication between the driver and the main office, along with navigation and the recording of the tour. This means then that even a substitute driver will easily be able to follow the optimum route, saving unnecessary detours, time and cost. The vehicle’s telematics data can also be captured providing valuable insights into performance and eco-driving data.

System Advantages

  • Manages resources and equipment more effectively
  • Optimal planning of tours, shifts and maintenance of the vehicle fleet
  • Follow-me function for precise guidance
  • Simple reporting of incidents to the main office
  • Exceptionally configurable with a modular set of features
  • Easy connection to vehicle systems

Filling level sensor

Real-time filling level detection of containers

The MOBA level sensor (FLS) is another component of our modular solutions that enables efficient and resource-saving fleet and waste management. Any container, designed for any content, can be easily equipped with our mobile ultrasonic sensor. This provides real-time data transmission on the current fill level and the container status to the office, where it is stored and processed with the MAWIS U2 software. The benefit is that the container is only emptied when the contents reaches a pre-determined fill level, thus optimising the collection tour.

System Advantages

  • Reduces waste disposal and collection costs
  • Optimal utilisation of container capacity
  • Optimisation of collection tours by up to 30%
  • Reduces the number of containers needed
  • Real-time information

Access control


MOBA’s Access Control system, when fitted to bins or containers, provide individual access for residents in housing complexes. The same applies to users of Underground Refuse Systems which could also allow for pay-as-you-throw billing. In each case, waste-locks on the containers are equipped with our RFID readers which then requires a valid user identification before waste can be inserted. Similarly, this could also apply to commercial businesses on industrial parks, shared offices or trade centres.

System Advantages

  • Transparent waste collection process
  • Opportunities to intervene via blocking lists, etc.
  • Tour and performance optimisation
  • Improved service due to prompt access to information
  • Option to tailor billing according to individual container provision
  • More flexibility since the system remains anytime upgradeable thanks to the open CANbus interface

Who are MOBA's RFID, telematics and weighing solutions of interest for?

With the MAWIS identification system, you get legally compliant proof of every emptying. Illigally provided and stolen containers can be specifically excluded from disposal or quickly found again. Get more transparency about the processes during the collection through online transfer of the emptying data and the prevention recorded by the drivers. Offer your citizens an improved service by providing quick responses to enquiries or complaints. Encourage your citizens to reduce residual waste by offering the ability to change billing to individual container collection.

Offer your customers an opportunity to reduce residual waste and increase your profits from raw materials with more recycling.
