Afvalwijzer automation with Node-RED

I use the great Afvalwijzer integration to integrate with my Dutch waste collector. The readme and the topic show different ways to create HA automations and dashboard view which is quite helpful.

I noticed however that many users struggle with setting up template sensors. I myself find it much easier and much more fun to use Node-RED, so I decided to share and explain my setup for those who are interested:

In my case I render a single sorted glance card using custom entity nodes to change state and picture:

with a sequece like this:

I hope this is useful for others also. Feel free to leave a comment if you have questions or remarks.
