This smart garbage can rewards people who choose not to litter by giving them access to free wifi Internet. Based in India, 'new age media' startup ThinkScream invented a trash can that gives 15 minutes of Internet connection to people who feed it rubbish.

The plastic bins have light-up LED screens and a radius that reaches 50 yards. The eye-catching installations have already been used at a music festival in an effort to provide incentive for keeping public spaces clean.

This provides a lot of potential for Mumbai -- India's most populated city. The new venture has attracted a lot of attention from other companies who are also interested in the branding opportunities from the $1500 USD smart garbage receptacles.
