R3D3, the smart trash can that automatically sorts for recycling

Understanding sorting instructions for trash disposal is a bane of modern life. It shouldn’t require a university degree, but the complexity and variance of rules means that it can feel that way.

French startup Green CREATIVE has devised an innovative sorting technique that makes an initial diagnosis based on weight. Once the compression begins, an algorithm based on height and force determines what type of waste it is sorting. The R3D3 bin is smart enough to recognize, automatically sort and compact cans, disposable cups and plastic bottles. Place the object on the bin’s base – and it will do the rest.

During the European Sustainable Development Week being held from May 30 to June 5, Green CREATIVE will be showcasing the R3D3, and highlighting the environmental issues arising from beverage recycling. The connected bin has enjoyed considerable success in the last year and plans are already being made to target the Swiss market.
