“Smart” Bins Are a Reality

MEDIA MAX reports that Armenian “smart” bins are already real. On October 11, “Re-Apaga” charitable foundation presented its “Smartart Apaga” recycling bin. It is located in Mergelyan Institute area.

In order to use the “smart” bin you need to register at www.apagacommunity.com and get a QR code. The latter should be scanned in the appropriate part of the device, after which the trash is opened, and the clean and recyclable plastic can be thrown in it. The “SmartApaga” container weighs and gives “Future Points” with discounts and gifts from partner organizations.

The project became a reality within the framework of the AGBU-led Bridge4CSO project with the financial support of EU.

The design of the “smart” bin was implemented by “Locator” company.

The project assumes that each “SmartApraga” container will become the center of a green zone. It will be funded by one or more sponsors in the framework of which companies will not only take on their corporate social responsibility, but will also be able to place their advertisements on containers.

Currently the “smart” bin is able to collect 15 kg of plastic. The next containers will be improved with squeezing technique that will allow to place 80 kg plastic and will decide what material to throw, whether it is clean or not.
