Waste Management

Pay-as-you throw fees for for municipalities and industrial companies

Challenges in municipal and industrial waste management

Citizens’ Enquiries

Without collected data and easy to use software application, enquiries from citizens or companies cannot be answered quickly and accurately.

Precise weight monitoring

Weight can not be directly and accurately measured without an on-board scale.

Legally secure proof

Only with a certified identification system disposal data such as emptying date etc. can be legally recorded and documented.

Pay-as-you-throw invoicing

Pay-as-you-throw can be achieved only if bin emptying can be recorded against and assigned to the respective owner.

High running costs

If garbage bins are not registered and equipped with transponders, there is no way to detect bins which have not been paid for or bins not provided by council. 

Reduce residual waste

An incentive system to improve waste sorting based on fee models can only be realised by automatic detection of container emptying.

INTELLIGENT Technologies


MOBA is developing a wide range of products and technology services which together with products from our partners form a network for data collection and management in smart cities – the cities of the future.

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



Reliable, fully-automated bin identification system

The reliable, fully automated bin identification system MAWIS has proven itself in more than 20 years of Europe-wide use. The quick, simple identification and weighing of all types of waste containers optimizes the waste collection and offers significant advantages for both municipalities and disposal companies. By this means, fees can be charged for illigally provided bins and at the same time costs can be saved through a demand-driven provision of bins. The increased transparency of the disposal process saves considerable time since it enables an efficient route optimization of the vehicles and an effective complaint management.

System Advantages

  • Transparency of the processes involved in waste collection
  • Opportunities to intervene via blocking lists, etc.
  • Collection tour and performance optimization
  • Improved service due to prompt access to information
  • Option to convert billing according to individual container provision
  • More flexibility as the system is upgradeable thanks to the open CANbus interface

Mobile Weighing systems

Precise weight measurement directly at the truck

MOBA equips industrial, logistics and waste management companies with even more flexibility thanks to more than 40 years of experience in development and manufacture of mobile weighing systems. With the CANopen bus solution as communications interface, individual components can be not only easily exchanged but the entire system can be converted and upgraded in a short period of time.

System Advantages

  • Time savings though short weighing times
  • Legally compliant billing on-site
  • Extraordinary robustness thanks to vibration resistant
  • Anytime upgradeable with a RFID or telematics solution

Optimized collection tours for efficient waste collection

With the MOBA telematics solution, many other functions can be recognized that lead to an optimization of the emptying runs: better timing and geographic combinations of orders, as well as cost savings. Direct communication between driver and control center is now possible, as is navigation and recording of the driven route. A replacement driver also knows at all times which street he must turn down next. Using the recorded data, including GPS position, the route can be optimally planned in order to avoid wasteful routes. This operating data can be recorded as well. It provides valuable information about the condition and use of the vehicles.

System Advantages

  • Managing resources and equipment effectively
  • Optimal planning of collection tours, shifts and maintenance of the vehicle fleet
  • Follow-me function for precise guidance
  • All activities can be tracked (GPS and RFID)
  • Faster reaction to incidents such as traffic jams or stolen containers
  • Easy connection to external systems

Container fill level detection in real time

The  fill level sensor (FLS) complements the integrated MOBA solution for efficient and resource-saving fleet management in waste management. Any container with any content can be equipped with the mobile ultrasonic sensor in the shortest period of time. Thanks to real-time data transmission, all information on fill level and container status is immediately available in the office, where it is stored and processed with the MAWIS U2 software.

System Advantages

  • Minimise disposal costs
  • Optimal utilisation of capacities
  • Optimisation of emptying tours by up to 30%
  • Reduction in the number of containers
  • Up-to-date information in real time

Who are MOBA's waste management solutions of interest to?

With the MAWIS identification system, you get legally compliant proof of every bin 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 exceptions 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. Get more transparency about all the processes during the collection and optimize your collection tours and services based on recorded tours and accurate performance data. Exact and undisputed performance records thanks to automatic data collection save you considerable time, as there is no need to post-process orders and no need to make follow-up journeys due to incorrect reclamations.

Our solutions give you new billing models with special consideration of the pay-as-you-throw principle, i.e. you only pay for your waste and not for illegal waste containers. You get a precise, transparent proof of bin emptying with date and time and receive accurate and fast information from the municipality or waste disposal company on your enquiries or complaints. In addition you can lock your stolen garbage bin fast and let the disposal company or the municipality find it again.

MOBA offers you rugged, high-performance hardware components optimized for the waste disposal market, such as RFID readers, on-board computers, mobile scales or telematics solutions. All products are equipped with standard interfaces such as CleANopen or CANopen. In addition, we offer you customer-specific software applications and support services that you can use for a customized system structure.
