The concept

A five category recycling bin designed for household use: plastic, glass, steel, paper and organic waste. The recycling bin also tracts the rotting process and gives a regular feedback to the users.

The system tracks the rotting process of bio-degradable products with a simple color ph indicator sensor which detects the carbon dioxide amount which is increases parallel to food rotting process. The indicator will alert the users by changing the color of the trash lid to take out the trash when the items starts rotting.
