Thanks Meena! Been a while I know... good to be back, great challenge!

Hi Priyanka.. love the simplicity of this idea. I wonder if a small layer of technology might compliment it? A couple of years ago on a similar challenge, I read about a concept involving RFID tags called 'Smart Bins'... Here is a link... hope it might provide some inspiration for tangential developments!

Hi Timmy,

Great to see an exciting proposal that is already up and running to some extent. A couple of years ago I proposed an idea that shared some of the framework of ewasterace. I hoped that maybe the concept could encourage communities to group together and do something similar.

I was lucky enough to get some great feedback, and propose a few different scales for this kind of waste collecting and recycling to operate at. I think for the competitive/publicity element, it would be amazing to be able to publish the results and standings regularly to encourage more participation through competition.

Anyhow here is the link:
