THE garbage sorting campaign is now in full swing across the country, but many people still find it a headache to put all the different kinds of waste into the right bins. However, it won’t be a problem at the ongoing 21st China Hi-Tech Fair (CHTF) as companies are showcasing their latest technologies and products to make the process of waste sorting more fun and easier.
An intelligent garbage sorting and collection machine developed by Able Trillion Technology Development Co. Ltd. provides an easy and efficient solution to garbage classification. The company specializes in the development of green technologies and has offices in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Macao.

A visitor takes interest in the intelligent garbage sorting and collection machine developed by Able Trillion Technology Development Co. Ltd. at the 21st CHTF yesterday.
The machine has six bins for different kinds of garbage, namely paper, metals, glass, waste clothing, plastics and hazardous waste. By scanning the QR code on the machine, residents can weigh their garbage, locate the nearest locations where machines are available, redeem green account points, monitor malfunctions and send warnings to the platform if the garbage is overflowing.
Residents who accumulate the most points each month can also receive extra gifts.
In addition to the intelligent machine, the company is also promoting their self-developed water-soluble bags, biodegradable bags and utensils.
According to the company’s operation director Eric Chiu, the machine is being piloted at the Overseas Chinese Town in Nanshan District and he expects the machines to be used in more locations across the city.
