World’s smartest e-waste bin launches in UAE

By Staff

UAE generates one of the region’s biggest amounts of electronics waste, with the average UAE resident generating 17.2 kilograms of e-waste annually. To meet the growing e-waste recycling demands of UAE and the region, the world’s smartest e-waste bin will be developed by 2020.

The e-Bin is a smart and mobile electronic recycling waste bin, which aims to provide more efficient and improved services in e-waste recycling.

With integrated touch-screen technology, the smart recycling e-Bin will be programmed to communicate relevant information with both the user and the recycling company.

For example, the e-Bin will be able to tell the user if it is full and suggest the location of the next nearest e-Bin, whilst informing the recycling company to come and empty its contents.  It will also tell the user if their item is not suitable for recycling.

The e-Bin is designed by Baharash Architecture, the Designers behind projects such as The Sustainable City in Dubai and the Oasis Eco Resort in Liwa.

Its economical mass-production design adds to its uniqueness explains Baharash Bagherian, Designer and Founder of Baharash Architecture.

“Sheets of high quality carbon fibre are vacuum-formed to make relevant parts of the bin, creating a durable, strong, all-weather and lightweight bin”.

The smart e-Bin will not need to be connected to an electrical source as it will use solar power to recharge its touch-screen lid.

The smart e-Bin will only become manoeuvrable, when an administrator logs onto it.

The company is looking to launch the first generation of the e-Bin in UAE, to coincide with Dubai Expo 2020.
