Help Me Raise Funds for the Creation of Our Two-way Powered Automated Garbage Segregator

in #donations6 years ago (edited)

Hello Steemians! Thank you for your time :)

With your help we students can create a Two-way Powered Automated Garbage Segregator that will allow people to have no hassle in identifying which trash bins they are going to throw their garbages. This will also be beneficial to the general public because in the present, even if trash bins are labeled to their corresponding kind of waste, people will still throw garbages on the wrong trash bins. With this behavior, the recyclable waste cannot be reused anymore because it is mixed with liquid or hazardous materials.
Funds raised will be used to complete the production of our "Two-way Powered Automated Garbage Segregator" that anyone or the general public can use.

According to Hoornweg et al., (2012), there were 2.9 billion urban occupants who produced around 0.64 kg of wastes per individual every day which is 0.68 billion tons per year. These wastes needs to be segregated for easier recycling which would lessen the waste being dump in the landfill. Failure to segregate would stir up all the waste in the landfills which would leak after a time frame bringing about leachate or poisonous soup at the base, which could contaminate ground water and discharge hazardous methane gas. Methane is a green house gas, which ultimately leads to climate change, extreme climates and droughts. We can see the impact already in the world.


Two way-powered

It is called Two-way Powered Automated Garbage Segregator because this machine can work with direct electricity from outlets. To lessen the cost, those organic materials can be turned into electrical energy which will be the second source of electricty for the device to work making it cost-efficient.

Why is Segregation important?

Segregation is important because :
• If the waste is not separated properly, it all gets mixed up in landfills. The dangers of this is that they all leak after a period of time, resulting in leachate or toxic soup at the bottom, which can contaminate ground water and release explosive methane gas.

• Methane is a green house gas, which ultimately leads to climate change, extreme climates and droughts. We can see the impact already in the world.

• Segregation protects health. When ragpickers put their hands into the waste to clean it up, it results in cuts that further leads to infections, resulting indeterioration of a ragpicker’s health. Hence, it becomes our responsibility to help these ragpickers by carefully segregating the waste that is generated at our homes.

• When the waste is not separated properly it leads to less recycling because it is not easy to remove materials for recycling. This means many resources are wasted.

I like this. Personally I have been forced to use things like steemengine made by @steemengineteam to get ROI on my votes. I tried the whole buying vote thing but it took up way too much of my time. I even used steemfollower back in the day before they took away followers.
