Plasticircle is optimising plastic packaging transport costs from cities to the sorting plant. The system is based on the compaction of plastic both in the container (citizens pay less for lower packaging volumes, thus they will compact plastic waste at home) and in the trucks (pressing systems). Moreover, measuring the filling level of containers is allowing containers to only be collected when full thanks to an IoT cloud platform. Efficient driving has also been  integrated with optimised routes, saving saving fuel and transport costs.
