    Songjiang town installs a new kind of smart cans for recycling garbage

    A new kind of smart cans for recycling garbage has been put to use in the Century New Town Community in Songjiang. It can help people to correctly sort out garbage and automatically accumulate green points for garbage-sorting behavior.

    Users can scan the QR code on the cans before throwing in the waste. After the window is shut down, the can will weigh the garbage. The recycled materials will be translated into money which can be drawn out as cash from the account when its accumulated green points reach a certain amount.

    The device has employed Big Data, the Internet of Things and AI to make the garbage sorting easier for residents.

    It now has six recycling categories including metal, plastic, fabrics, paper, glass and hazardous waste. Each window has a sign telling people which category the rubbish should go to.

    So far over 3,000 residents in the community have registered to have a try and the number of users keeps increasing. The community management plans to install two more combinations of such cans to cover more neighborhoods.
