Even in today's urbanized cities around the world, there is still an absence of recycling and proper trash systems due to numerous issues, but the Toknee by Yash Mevada is a design that will help make garbage collection easier.

In urban cities such as Mumbai, there are poverty stricken people who make a living by thriving in wastelands, collecting plastic to earn a living collecting only about a dollar a day. They are called 'rag pickers,' and are the ones who scavenge for plastic waste and other goods to make a living.

Garbage bins are usually vandalized or stolen, but the Toknee is made out of concrete to avoid these problems. The Toknee will make it easier for rag pickers to collect garbage, minimizing health and sanitary problems prevalent in their everyday lives. Stats for Poverty-Aiding Bins Trending: Older & Chilly
