Bin-e Automatically Sorts Trash and Deposits It In The Right Place

No matter how well labeled they are, public trash receptacles end up getting misused by at least a few inconsiderate passersby who end up putting items in the wrong place, so the Bin-e makes disposing of garbage a foolproof system. The smart receptacle automatically sorts through items, depositing them in the correct bin for recycling or waste.

Bin-e uses a combination of smart sensors, cameras, and artificially intelligent algorithms to assess items. It efficiently sorts items by their recycling categories (or otherwise deposits them as waste,) which ultimately saves public buildings both time and money. Further, the receptacle comes with a compression system that increases the amount of time between maintenance periods.

Though garbage is often an afterthought, the Bin-e system saves money and contributes to environmental friendliness.
