Problem 31 – I Forgot to Take the Trash Out

Problem

We can easily forget to take the trash out on a collection day or overfill our bins. Dealing with trash is also generally an unpleasant task anyway.

Possible Solution

The bin can automatically close the bag inside and have it ready for us to take out. This can be done when it detects that the trash has reached a particular height of weight. It can also do it at a scheduled time – before a collection day for example. This can be set on our phone via an app.

The bin can automatically close the bag if bags with tie strings are used, as it would just need to pull the strings. It can then open its front and allow the filled bag to fall out. Spare bags can be stored in the lid, and it can replace them by blowing them open into the bin. We can then get notified on our phone when it has dispensed a filled bag.

As bins usually stay in one place, they can be plugged into an outlet to provide power. We would only be required to replace the bags and dispose of the dispensed bag, however it should prevent the problem of forgetting to take the trash out.

As always if you think you have a solution or if you have a problem you would like me to try to solve then please feel free to comment it.
