Waste Audit

Developing a protocol and mechanical system to house sensors that will use facial recognition technology to identify trash to allow for improved auditing of what is in the City of Phoenix trash at the local landfill. The goal is to understand what type of trash is being thrown away by people in Phoenix which will allow businesses to form to start recycling those materials or using those materials for other industries (capturing palm tree leaves to use to create palm oil or biofuels).
