How would you use RFID's to improve your city?
RFID Tags for waste bins
May 09, 2013 Martin O3

A RFID tag could be attached to each waste bin with a particular id associated with that household/street/suburb.

This way, as the waste collection trucks (in Australia, waste is collected with trucks with automated arms that pick up bins and empties them) pass by and pick up the waste for collection, data can be collected with other sensors to track the amount of waste/recycling a house/street/suburb produces.

This information could then be used to help make people aware of the amount of waste is being produced in different areas within the city.
