Why do we need to manage our waste?

European Union produces more than 2.5 billion tons of waste every year and that amount keeps growing every year. Less than half of it is recycled or composted. The European Union has set a target that 70 % of all the waste has to be recycled by 2030 which is compared to only 44% by today . 1/3 of the municipal waste goes to landfills and for some European union member states it's even more. In Greece, ¾ of everything thrown away ends up in landfills. 88 million tons of food is wasted in the European Union every year mostly by households. Sorting centers are in high demand for sorting waste but they can turn out to be expensive when you throw the waste in bulk. Managing waste is the responsibility of every individual living in the European Union.

They are a fully enclosed system that minimizes contamination of the recyclables, prevents misuse, and simplifies the recycling process. Mostly they are made of sensors, mechanical processors, Image processing units, and communication modules. The AI smart recycling bin is made usually with recycled material and is energy efficient. With the help of the smart bin you can create a circular economy.
