Trash bins on the move that can be found all over the city, are emptied on the go and can be halted or called to a specific location.
street bins have many flaws (they smell bad, they are often dirty and messy, and birds take out the trash)
street bins make it hard to recycle waste since they often do not engage people in separating waste
they are not always emptied when full
waste management companies charge you a defined fee per person or a fixed fee, with often no flexibility according to the amount or type of waste
trucks that empty trash bins and containers are really loud
The service would consist of two types of customers (Collectors and Subscribers) and a waste management company. The concept would be similar to Uber.
Collectors would apply for a job the same way as Uber drivers and would get a trash bin that they asked for (small, medium, big, type of waste). The trash bin could be installed inside or outside a vehicle (truck, van, car, scooter, bicycle) and would be a Collector's responsibility to keep it clean and in good shape. The bins could be for general waste, plastic, paper, metal, batteries, etc. The Collectors would dovnload the app and would accept emptying requests (waste disposal) from Subscribers, empty the full bins in busy areas or empty their own bins in local waste disposal center.
Subscribers would also download an app and use it to find moving waste-collecting vehicles or request waste collection on site. Every trash bag or waste would be weighted once inside the trash bin and determined the type of waste. Based on size, weight and type, the Subscriber would be charged a fee.
Part of the fee would go to the Collector, while the rest would go to the service company. Company would recycle or sell waste and earn money from it. I imagine it to function the same as bolt food, uber, or similar service.
no smelly and messy street bins
no fixed waste management fees - you pay by the amount and type of waste you make
waste is being collected on the go and emptied at the end of the day (or whenever, but extremely fast)
What do you think, would this system work?
Why would people choose to use it besides saving money and keeping the streets cleaner?
How would you design the specialized bins and where would you put them?
