Q / recycle bin

Q
Q

“Q” is a bottle gathering device helping solve the problem of waste bottles’ collection and recycling. Set in the community, “Q” welcomes you to throw empty bottles into it and prints you a ticket which can be used to exchange other service in the community. “Q” can feel bottles approaching and open its mouth automatically. The four LED bottles on its head show the fullness and all turn red when “Q” is full. “Q”'s height is convenient for all users and the lovely figure is friendly.
