Keith commented on Smart Labeling and Geo-referenced Bin Finding App

Hi Kate, thanks for the comment. Basically, no, this does not seem like a problem to me. Small plastic bits such as coffee cup lids (or sachets of any kind, etc) need to be labelled so people know what to do with them, and then the app will recognize these labels and assist. Thus this is indeed a suggested re-engineering of the plastic itself - being the labels that the app reads. In addition, I'm sure the organizers are more interested in solving the plastic litter problem than draconian reading of these scoping statements - certainly that is our position. All the best!

OK. I added a graphic. Another good graphic would be a pokemon-go stop. Recycle bins should be geo-referenced and 'findable' with the app like pokemon stops.
