New Scientist Follows Garbage In The UK
MIT's TrashTrack program was used to follow the trash of New Scientist readers to see if it was properly handled.
TrashTrack is an initiative by the MIT’s Senseable City Lab to understand the challenges of waste management in urban areas in order to build more efficient and sustainable infrastructures in cities. The project used smart, location aware tags and attached them to different types of trash to follow them through the city’s waste management system and revealing their final journey in real time.
