Taking the gayness out of recycling
I have a recycling bin, I chuck everything in it…everything, it is much easier than actually giving a shit about recycling. Turns out this is the best way to encourage recycling.
In Houston, for example, they want to construct a high-tech sorting facility that would allow 75 percent of the city’s trash to be recycled using technologies from the mining and refining industries (residents put everything in one bin; technology handles the rest). In Boston, they want to put more youth data in the hands of parents and empower them to share it more easily with educators, technologists, and researchers to ensure the best programs for their children. Even in a smaller town, like Springfield, Oregon, they are trying to create mobile primary healthcare that combine at-your-door service with telemedicine technology in order to reduce EMS and ER costs.
Here is a Waste Management video of a similar facility:
