Abstract (en)

A plastic waste bin incorporates a transponder for identification by a collection vehicle and exchange of information such as weight. The transponder (6) is held in place by fixings (7, 8) which make direct contact with it and are made from material(s) that are compatible, from the point of view of recycling, with the plastic used to make the bin itself. The fixings hold the transponder in place in a cavity (4) situated e.g. beneath the collar (1) used for gripping the bin. One of the fixings (7) comprises a housing with a threaded skirt (10) and surfaces shaped to receive a tool used to unscrew it.
