With growing obligations to reduce landfill and prioritise environmental protection, measures to improve separation and incentivise recycling have come to the fore in waste management. Pay-by-weight is an important trend. But it creates a new point of friction in refuse collection - how to accurately and efficiently differentiate and weigh loads in transit so correct charges can be levied.

VPG Onboard Weighing is the world’s longest established specialist in on-vehicle solutions for the waste market. With bespoke systems designed for pay-by-weight, load optimisation, legal-for-trade compliance and more, we supply robust, reliable, highly accurate solutions that support modern waste management in all of its forms.

Flexible Waste Management Solutions

One of the things that makes VPG Onboard Weighing a market leader in waste management is that we offer a full range of industry-specific weighing solutions for every relevant vehicle type. Whether your fleet includes skip loaders, side loaders, rear loaders, front-end loaders, hook loaders or you just use vans, we have specially tailored products that are compatible with all manufacturer’s makes and models.

Our flexible systems cover all market demands, whether load optimisation to boost efficiency, overload protection to prevent wear and tear or certified weight measurement systems for legal-for-trade compliance. Our growing range also includes cloud-based services capable of connecting pay-by-weight and telematics systems over the air, enabling real-time data sharing and support.

Dynamic Weighing | Live Data Transfer

Dynamic weighing has become a must-have feature of pay-by-weight solutions for waste management. The ability to weigh refuse in real time as it is loaded hands operators the tools to drive forward performance gains in speed, efficiency, precision and risk mitigation.

VPG Onboard Weighing takes dynamic weighing solutions to the next level. Not only is our BinWeigh03 system approved to Class Y(b) on wheelie bin collection vehicles, we have added over-the-air data transfer via the cloud to support rapid, reliable, accurate billing and credit control.

Maximise Efficiency, Manage Compliance

Effective fleet oversight is invaluable for the modern waste management company, not only to optimise efficiency and performance but also to monitor compliance. With our modern telematics solutions, clients are able to track individual pick-up weights in real time, helping them to maximise profits via intelligent load efficiency planning.

Just as important for fleet managers is the ability to manage compliance from afar. Central monitoring of pick-up weights can help companies avoid overload fines and stop drivers putting their licenses at risk. This also contributes to accident prevention and unnecessary wear and tear on vehicles, which also keeps insurance premiums down.

VanWeigh units are worth their weight in gold!

Nick HatchettStores Supervisor, Booth Dispensers Ltd, UK

I have just ordered our fourth VanWeigh system in two years for our growing fleet of VW Crafters. VPG Onboard Weighing fitters are polite, courteous and well trained in their knowledge of the units being fitted. Vehicles are left clean, tidy and ready for work. 

The VanWeigh units themselves are worth their weight in gold. There is no fiddling about to add up weight, just load the vehicles and the unit does the rest. Drivers can see straight away if they need to alter their load to spread the weight.
