Sometimes it can be a little hard determining whether or not something is “recyclable”. Fortunately, most items contain a recycling symbol on its packaging which contains a numerical value denoting whether or not that specific item can be recycled. The Barcode Trashcan removes the guessing by allowing the user to “scan” the item he/she wishes to recycle. If the item can be recycled, the appropriate bin will open.

Easy as pie. The Barcode Trashcan is designed by Woo Seok Park.

    Has to be said, that’s a pretty cool idea. I’d definitely recycle more if there was some technological incentive to do so – even better would be if the trash can spoke to you..
