Trash Bin Educates Reluctant Recyclers
The can has been designed in an effort to increase recycle rates in France
Last year a report from a French consumer watchdog reported that the country’s recycling rates were ‘disastrous’ and well below that of its European neighbors. To combat the issue a startup called Uzer has designed a smart trash bin that tells you what can be recycled and track what you are consuming. With the mechanics of a pedal bin and the addition of a barcode scanner the device could help France out with its reluctance to recycle.
