Smart waste bins at the University of Washington send digital signals to waste collection when it’s time for pickup.

Writ large, such a system could save tons (of CO2) in unnecessary disposal truck emissions.

    This is great! If these were used all over the world, this would help reduce the overall carbon footprint an enormous amount. It really motivates people to recycle.
