Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Smart City Management: The model can be used in public spaces for real-time monitoring of littering activities, enabling immediate cleanup actions and helping to maintain cleanliness.

  2. Waste Sorting Automation: It can be used in waste sorting facilities to quickly and accurately classify waste into different categories, enhancing recycling efficiencies and reducing manual labour.

  3. Beach Clean-up Events: It can aid in beach clean-up efforts by identifying and classifying trash, helping volunteers to prioritize trash types that are more harmful to marine life.

  4. Education and Awareness Programs: It serves as an educational tool for campaigns aiming to raise awareness on waste generation and management, by visually demonstrating the variety of waste we produce and the need for appropriate disposal.

  5. Environmental Research: Scientists can use it for studying patterns in waste production and accumulation, aiding in the development of environmental conservation strategies.
