COLOR / classification ash-bin


COLOR dustbin is a kind of public dustbin based on color recognition technology and ground power generation technology.
COLOR's unique interactive design solves the problems of garbage sorting and limited public space and beauty, and provides a solution for garbage sorting and efficient recycling at a lower cost.
When the user goes to the dustbin to throw rubbish, the floor generator starts to store energy.
The garbage sorting device is underground. While ensuring the simple and beautiful appearance, it provides convenience for the rapid positioning and efficient recycling of the recycling car.
