Smart Bin

The idea of this speculative design project is to help users manage and track their waste (trash) disposal.

Often times people walk to their trash and discovered it is full or about to be and there is little or no space to drop the trash they are about to dispose of. This sometimes ends in a situation where they are dropped on the floor. Furthermore, some users have the challenge of identifying how to dispose of certain types of trash that they have in their possession.
