Smart trash cans fine residents who fail to recycle

Going green is something that everyone should look into especially with the population explosion that’s going on, not to mention having to keep pollution in check so that our next generation will have a habitable earth to live upon. Recycling is one of those ways you can do your part, and Cleveland residents are on the front line so-to-speak – after all, they face paying a $100 fine if they don’t recycle enough. Your trash can will be measured for recyclables using RFID chips that are embedded within while bar codes will help keep track of how often residents take them to the curb. Just make sure you remove recyclables such as glass, metal cans, plastic bottles, paper and cardboard and send them packing to the righ place if you want to spend your Benjamin elsewhere.
