Smart Trash

December 20, 2009


This technology would greatly enhance a free-market trash system. Private companies would compete to give disposers the best return on their trash and this technology would lower transaction costs.

It would be easy to know what people throw out, so they can be charged for costly trash (such as dead batteries) and rewarded for resalable junk (such as computer monitors). Not only would we cut out craigslist for a lot of stuff, but throwing out old electronics would be easier.
