As the effects of climate change become more and apparent, we should all be thinking more about ways to protect our environment. One way everyone can do their part is to recycle properly. However, it’s easier said than done. Not only is there a lack of recycling bins in public areas, we often see the occurrence of ‘wishcycling’, where individuals put anything in the recycling bin in the hope that it will be recycled. This leads to contamination of recyclable material and extra manpower to re-sort at the back end.
HOW CAN SMART RECYCLING BINS HELP?
Thankfully, advances in technology are taking this pain point away with innovations. Auto-sorting recycling bin, a smart recycling bin equipped with AI and image processing which automatically identifies the type of waste disposed into the bin, then sorts it into plastic, paper, metal or glass. All the user has to do is put their waste item in and the bin will do the rest. It features an auto-compaction function, a fill level displayed on the touch screen display and on the app, and further data can be accessed on the cloud for analysis. The bin is perfect for promoting recycling in areas of heavy human traffic such as theme parks, offices, campuses, hospitals, stations, residential areas, convention centers, etc.
Promoting good recycling habits is essential to prevent further damage to our environment. Contact GF Technovation Hong Kong to learn more about AI recycling bins.
