Smart recycling bins are designed to help people recycle more efficiently and effectively. One advantage of using smart garbage bins is that they can help to reduce contamination in the recycling stream. This can be achieved through sensors that can detect contaminants such as non-recyclable materials, food waste, and other substances that may not be recyclable.
Human error plays a significant role in contributing to residual waste generation, accounting for over 60% of the total waste produced in Europe. This statistic underscores the need for a comprehensive approach to waste management, recycling, and sustainability, rooted in expert knowledge and experience in the field.
One of the key factors leading to human error in waste management is the lack of awareness and understanding of proper waste disposal practices. This can result in the incorrect sorting of recyclable materials, leading to them being disposed of as residual waste.
Garby is a prime example of a smart garbage bin that addresses the issue of contamination in the recycling stream. Through the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and our proprietary mechanical design, Garby automatically sorts waste, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and the presence of non-recyclable materials in the recycling stream.

Garby automatically sorts waste in order to simplify the recycling process by utilizing AI and automatically identifying and sorting different types of waste such as plastic, paper, metal, and glass.
This innovation is particularly suitable for promoting recycling in high-traffic areas like theme parks, offices, campuses, hospitals, stations, residential areas, and various business ventures and operations.
Now that we've wrapped this up, let's look at some advantages of smart garbage bins for waste management.
