Company Profile

  • Fill Level Monitoring – Clean CAP

    Clean CAP is a smart, wireless, ultrasonic sensor that measures fill-level information in real-time. It works in close conjunction with Clean City Networks (CCN) monitoring and data-analytics platform, which provides bin fill-level information in real-time basis via 2G/3G, telecommunication networks (and soon, LoRa technology). They can be attached to any existing containers including litter bins, liquid tanks, silos, underground bins, etc. By employing Clean CAP and CCN, users can significantly reduce associated costs (labour, time and fuel) related to waste collection operations by up to 50%.

    What our customers say:

    “After deploying the solution, we have been able to go from collecting 840 containers 4 times a day to collecting just 80 containers a day. This has increased our operational efficiency upwards of 90% and resulted in significant cost savings. The solution has also provided us with data which has allowed us to recognise peak times in areas and from that adjust the allocation of staffing in those areas as well as increase waste container capacity where needed.”

    — Facility Manager, Dublin Airport

    “Before, we didn’t know when the waste bins in Bukchon became full. Now, we know in real-time the fill-level of each bin thanks to the Clean CAP solution. Since we’re able to quickly take action before any problem occurs, there are no longer any issues with rubbish overflow.”

  • Solar Powered Compacting Litter Bin – Clean CUBE

    Compact your waste with solar energy and save up to 80% with Clean CUBE!

    Instead of dealing with multiple waste bins, with our solar powered compacting litter bins you could simply compact the waste so that it can hold up to 8 times that of standard litter bins. You can monitor real-time bin fill-level, bin status, and use the built-in analytics to optimise collection schedules and routes, only emptying bins that require emptying, saving time and fuel.

    Product features

    Features a built-in, patented solar-powered compactor which triggers automatically based on the bin’s fill-level. It’s compatible with standard 120L & 240L wheelie bins for easy and safe rubbish removal. There is even a 100L version.

    Communicates in real-time to a smart waste management platform, CCN. 2G and 3G telecommunication modules are available through GSM network.

    Real-time data and analysis

    The compaction and fill-level information are sent to CCN, which not only helps the operation managers to understand the location and times of waste collections, but also improves the way they collect the rubbish by recommending the optimal collection routes based on real-time data and predictive analytics.

    Customisable design and advertisements

    The entire solar waste bin can be wrapped and printed for marketing purposes. What’s more, Clean CUBE solar-powered litter bins can have advertising panels, with or without LED backlights, to generate additional revenue. With LCD video screens you have the possibility of moving images for dynamic advertising. For indoor use we offer a hybrid AC/Solar version.

    Safety features

    • CE mark – Clean CUBE solar waste bin complies with all relevant EU safety regulations.
    • Safety sensor – built-in safety sensor detects motion and stops waste compaction when it detects an obstruction.
    • Fire detection – bin’s temperature sensor triggers an automatic compacting response to extinguish fire.
    • Locking mechanism – All exterior access points are fitted with anti-tamper screws.
  • Airport Bins – Campus Range, Public Furnishings, Litter Bins

    100% SUSTAINABLE Litter Bins and Public Furnishings

    The CAMPUS GOOOL is the most sustainable solution for indoor pre-sorting of waste. The bin is completely recyclable, and it can be manufactured from up to 100% recycled material. Its high quality guarantees a long product life. This container makes the collection of various fractions more ergonomic and economic and improved separation of recyclable materials results in a higher recycling ratio.


    The classy design of the new CAMPUS GOOOL easily adapts to a stylish office environment, a modern airport lounge or passenger waiting room. A choice of material effects and special colours allows an individual look which can adapt to the surrounding interior design. Markings and labels on the cover and sides can also be adapted to the corresponding corporate branding.


    With 3 removable 45L inner containers, easy to clean surfaces, hinged lockable covers and a watertight container the CAMPUS GOOOL offers an easily operable and hygienic solution which is ready to use straight from the box

  • Wheeled Bins

    We have a comprehensive range of sizes with plastic wheeled bins from 40L up to 1100L mounted on 2, 4 or even 3 wheels. The 1100L comes in either flat lid, roll top or split lid.


    ESE has BEEN awarded the internationally acknowledged ecolabel, “The Blue Angel”. The environmental standards mark is the only independent label – worldwide – used to measure the eco-friendliness of plastic bins for waste and recyclables. Intended for the protection of people and the environment, it sets very exacting standards and has proven itself, over more than 35 years, as a guide for selecting environmentally-friendly products.

    The bar for the award of The Blue Angel is set very high. The container has to be made from at least 80% Recycled Plastics and the material has to be certified according to EuCertPlast criteria – this means the origin of the material and the whole supply chain need to be traceable. Furthermore, the production site and processes have to be certified by an independent accredited institution.


    Our containers fulfil all current European and national standards and they are certified in accordance with the highest quality standard worldwide, the RAL‑GZ951/1.


    If you don’t want plastic bins and prefer steel we have a range of galvanised steel bins available in 660L and 1100L sizes which can be painted to your requirements
