The non-profit organization Local Government EconomicServices (LGES) provides logistical and project management services to local authorities in Israel and are tasked with helping local governments achieve their smart city ambitions.

The Municipality of Netanya lacked transparency on bin fill levels and services and were challenged by overflowing bins and late collections. The municipality installed smart sensors in their underground containers for general waste and began pioneering a dynamic approach to waste collection with intelligent routing that empowered waste collectors to service bins in an event-driven manner.

The Nordsense solution has helped the municipality to:
- Reduce collection services by 30%
- Service 81% of bins at the right time
- Create more meaningful work for drivers and waste collectors
