Check out the TEDx-talk on the history of waste bins

In this TEDx-talk we talk about why we need to upgrade our waste bins and redefine business models in waste management.


Did you know that the waste bin was introduced in 1875? The TEDx Countdown event was a global conversation on how to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, and turn ideas into action. Our innovation lead Anders Waage Nilsen talked about the origins of the waste bins, and how data collection in waste infrastructure is animportant to enable circular value chains. He also talks about the pay-as-you-throw system in Bergen, and some of our ongoing pilot projects.
