I know a few others have a similar idea, but I think there should be waste receptacles that can distinguish between recycleable materials, biowastes, harmful materials and trash to separate four types of waste within one system or appliance which provides a way to easily get all the components to the garbage truck once a week and provide useful data to the users such as weights and % recycled. Harmful materials would incude batteries and computer parts, chemicals, and biohazardous waste. I think the benefits of a Smart Trash system would be great for global urban sustainability.
