Municipal waste and bulk collection. What are the benefits?


The quantitative collection is still in its infancy in Slovakia, and it is a system that can in many cases very effectively save the population money for waste, increase transparency, fairness and is more efficient for municipalities. What is its success?


How does quantitative waste collection work?

The bulk collection system has long been known. However, it is also becoming more and more common in home residents. It is a system where no flat fee is paid for waste. The fee is set for each according to the volume of the vessel and the frequency of exports. Based on this, taxpayers monitor the amount of municipal waste produced, ie waste that cannot be separated. Such a system makes landfills much easier and, importantly, motivates people to sort and often not produce waste unnecessarily.


Deployment is easy and fast

The advantage is that the quantitative collection of waste can be started relatively easily and very quickly. The ESONA system offers local governments comprehensive and efficient waste management. Using data from RFID chips placed on waste bins, the system can determine exactly how much mixed municipal waste the taxpayers produce. Based on this, the municipality can calculate the price transparently and have all costs associated with waste under control.

The system is fast and clear

Export records take place almost immediately after the RFID chips are loaded. Everything is available in the application and everyone has an overview of waste production. It is a quick and practical solution, the benefits of which are clear. After the introduction of quantitative collection, municipalities clearly show a decrease in unsorted waste. Thanks to the bulk collection with ESONA, citizens themselves become more motivated to separate waste. This contributes to lower costs for the collection and disposal of mixed municipal waste.


The intention is also defined in the Program Statement of the Government of the Slovak Republic

The intention to introduce compulsory quantity collection on the entire territory of Slovakia is also defined in the current Program Statement of the Government of the Slovak Republic.

Therefore, it is appropriate to start dealing with this system of waste collection and to become one of the municipalities that will start to use it more efficiently and thus be able to provide the population with a fair amount of waste fees. Because not everyone has to pay a waste fee. ESONA – comprehensive waste management – can also help you with this.
