Former Williams Man Develops Empty Trash Bin Notification

Product Developer Bruce Roberts dreads trash pick-up day.

“If there’s one chore you do not look forward to, it has to be taking your trash and recycle out to the curb for pick-up day. It’s almost as painful to think about having to retrieve them again after they’ve been emptied by the truck,” said Roberts, “However, there’s always the lingering question of, when is it time to bring my bins back in from the curb? Has the truck been by yet or not? Which truck has been by first? Trash, Recycle, or yard waste?”

Former Williams Man Develops Empty Trash Bin Notification

After much frustration of heading to the curb, and finding his trash bin still full, Roberts developed a unique visual alert to notify consumers of their empty cans.

Trash-at-a-glance takes the guesswork out of wondering if/when your bins are ready to be retrieved from the curb.

The simple and highly effective device requires no tools needed for installation and does not cause any damage to the cans.

“All you do is peel the backing off the weather resistant tape, and stick it on your bin. You can use it immediately. It is that simple,” said Roberts.

The Trash-at-a-Glance is unique in that it allows the bin user to directly and quickly look out the window to see if it is time to pick up your containers with just one glance.

How does it work? Just like the mail flag on your mailbox, when the waste bin is full, the flag is vertical in the “UP” position and can be easily seen from a distance. When the trucks hydraulic arms pick it up and rotate it upside down for emptying, gravity drops the flag. When the bin is placed back on the ground, the flag is now horizontal showing it is empty. This indicates that the container is ready to bring back from the curb.

“Now your trash bins are working FOR you instead of AGAINST you,” said Roberts, “So, say goodbye to false trips to the curb for nothing. Say hello to the assurance and peace of mind it brings you! “For more information or to view a short video on how the Trash-at-a-Glance works, check out their website at www.trashataglance.com or, call 408-966-4365 for more information.
