Sensor technology inside waste and recycling containers provides a quantum leap forward in managing waste effectively. However, not all sensors are built the same, nor capture everything you’re looking for.

Pello helps you find the right sensors (and cameras) for the materials you manage so you know what’s in your container, where it’s located, it’s fill level and pick-up alerts, and the exact type of illegal dumping (contamination) that may be happening.

Our Sensor toolbox includes:

  • The proprietary Pello Hybrid Sensor
  • Camera Sensors
  • Laser Sensors
  • Ultrasonic Sensors

Meet the sensor that does it all.

The Pello Sensor

  • Icon

    Multiple Ultrasonic

    The sensor that provides the most accurate fill level measurements.

  • Icon

    Spectral Camera

    White light, Infrared and Ultraviolet – this sensor can see them all and identify objects and materials with the highest degree of accuracy.

  • Icon

    GPS & Cellular

    Our powerful external antenna reliably connects in all locations.

  • Icon

    Rugged & Ready

    Our sensor meets the industry’s toughest standards: IP67 -40 to +60 degree Celsius Shock and vibration resistant.

  • Icon

    Easy to Install

    Installs with standard battery powered hand tools in less than 15 mins

  • Icon

    Contamination Identification

    Images captured to see what’s actually in the container, identifying contamination and creating alerts and event triggers.

No matter your container type, we have a sensor that works

Camera Sensors

Best in large dumpsters at buildings to detect fill levels and contamination

Laser Sensors

Great for smaller containers such as public litter collection and recycling totes

Ultrasonic Sensors

Great for medium sized containers, these sensors work well even when dirty

Pello Hybrid Sensor

Combines camera and ultrasonic sensors to provide reliaable data, measurement and images
