Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Waste Classification and Recycling: Industries or municipal bodies could employ this model to automatically sort waste into paper or plastic categories, facilitating more efficient recycling processes.

  2. Environmental Protection: Various organizations or government departments might use the model for capturing and monitoring plastic waste in public areas or natural environments, helping to measure pollution levels.

  3. Retail and Supermarkets: It could be integrated into self-service checkout systems to automatically identify the difference between plastic and paper packaging, allowing for potential pricing differences or recycling initiatives.

  4. Education and Research: Teachers, students, and researchers can use it as a practical tool for exploring machine learning or environmental sciences and promoting the importance of waste separation.

  5. Smart Home Integration: The model could be integrated into a smart home system to guide residents in sorting their trash accurately and educating them on recycling.
