Fire Detection

Categories: Smart


Fires in dumpsters can cause damage to both containers and property when fires spread to nearby buildings or other structures.

Fires in dumpsters are a common occurrence, sometimes set by vandals or arsonists but occasionally can be spontaneous combustion of flammable materials. Whatever the cause, knowing that a dumpster fire is happening means you can take immediate action to put out the fire and quickly start the process of replacing the dumpster so that services are not disrupted. Instead of learning about a dumpster fire from the local fire department, tenant or citizen you the Pello system can proactively notify you that a bin fire has occurred with our Fire Alert feature so you can take immediate action. Smart waste means knowing more so you can act faster and know more. Say hello to being ahead of the game with Pello Alerts.

  • Temperature Alerts – high temperature alert mean a dumpster is on fire, we also have low temperature alerts in case you want to know that as well 🙂
  • Tilt Alerts – this alert lets you know if a container has been tipped over so you can proactively get it put back in place.
  • GPS Alerts – this alert lets you know a container is not where is has been tagged in the system, track your assets so you know where everything is all the time.
