BWaste, BroNij and Ferro-Fix form a leading player in the production, maintenance and technology of smart waste systems. The companies have a unique complementary service offering: BWaste has equipped some 18,000 containers with software and electronic technologies. With the help of fill-rate meters and a dynamic route optimization software, this reduces the number of pick-up moments by 30 - 50%, limits CO2 emissions and extends the lifespan of containers. BroNij has developed a unique concept for the maintenance and inspection of containers to ensure maximum uptime and safety for users and collectors while minimizing nuisance in public areas. Ferro-Fix supplies high-quality steel products, such as waste systems and public furniture. Ferro-Fix is unique as these products are produced by people with a disadvantage to the labor market, without compromising on quality, service or price.
