e-Bin is a mobile, smart and versatile electronic recycling bin concept designed for both indoor and outdoor use. It features touch screen technology and can be programmed to send and receive useful information on both the user and the provider end. Therefore, a bin can tell a user the exact location of the nearest bin if it is full and notify the recycling company about its state at the same time. Moreover, it can also let the user know if their item would be suitable for reclining or not.
The economical mass-production design of e-Bin includes high quality carbon fiber sheets, making it strong, durable, lightweight and suitable for all weathers. It doesn’t require an electricity source since it uses solar power for its touch screen lid. An administrator needs to be logged in to customize the different settings of the smart bin.
