About BinClean

About BinClean

Since launching in 2002 BinClean SA has grown into one of South Africa’s leading waste management companies, offering waste management solutions that result in vastly reduced carbon footprints, which positively impacts the environment. BinClean’s extensive network enables the company to find waste management solutions that fit customers’ requirements, and provides them with hassle-free waste management services.

The company’s core business centres around skip and bin hire – BinClean SA only rents out its own skips and bins and does not utilise any client-owned containers, skips or bins.

The Challenge

The Challenge

In the past, BinClean dispatchers would communicate with drivers via two-way radio. Drivers would be provided with a list of all their trips for the day and use a map book to find the various addresses.

If there was a spelling mistake on the order sheet or there were pages missing from the map book, precious time would be wasted. More importantly, the company’s ability to deliver an excellent level of service would be compromised.

The overtime bill was eating into profitability and every resource was stretched to the limit, limiting the rate at which the company could grow in Gauteng and elsewhere.

The Solution

The Solution

BinClean CEO Neil Yates admits that, prior to the introduction of the Webfleet system, he was doubtful about the ability of any system to address the company’s unique requirements and challenges.
In 2015 BinClean installed the Link 510 tracking device into all its vehicles – it has a total of 11 vehicles – as well as the Webfleet fleet management and vehicle tracking system across its dispatch centres linked to mobile terminals.

The system optimised the company’s logistics planning onto a single integrated software system, resulting in an estimated 20% increase in production.

Thanks to the improvements in production efficiency, we were amazed to discover that we had one more vehicle than we actually needed, Yates says. This might not sound like much, but it’s reduced our overtime bill by 50% and we have been able to do 20% more work in a day, consuming half the overtime costs with one less vehicle.

Also, our fuel expenditure dropped by around 15%, reducing our overall carbon footprint while improving productivity. As we were able to complete more work each day at much lower cost, we were able to grow the business faster and serve more clients at a much higher level of excellence and precision, he says.

With the help of the Webfleet system, operator errors were significantly reduced as all orders would be sent remotely to each unit directly from the dispatch office. The system indicates if there are any problems with the addresses (such as spelling errors or name changes) and navigates the vehicle to the exact delivery location via the most efficient route.

The Webfleet system helps owners to optimise their fleets, provide real-time information about the location of vehicles and lets managers communicate directly with drivers.

Whether used in a single car or a national fleet of hundreds of vehicles, these systems offer improvements in driver behaviour, substantial fuel savings, and enable seamless connection to an ecosystem of third-party solutions, such as office applications, Bluetooth® wireless technology devices*, temperature sensors, tyre pressure monitors, barcode scanners, printers and various display terminals.
