Here are a few use cases for this project:

  1. Waste Management System: This model can be integrated into waste management systems to automate and enhance the segregation of waste materials, providing categories for plastics, glass, metal, cardboard, and other trash.

  2. Consumer Recycling Apps: The model can be used within a smartphone application that provides consumers with a tool to identify and properly sort recyclable materials, guiding them to the appropriate disposal method.

  3. Smart Trash Bins: This model could be used in the creation of “smart” trash bins capable of classifying and separating the waste deposited into them, increasing the efficiency and accuracy of recycling efforts.

  4. Education and Training: The model can be used as a teaching tool in sustainability programs or workshops to train individuals or students about the different types of waste materials and their potential recyclability.

  5. Industrial Recycling: Industries dealing with vast amounts of mixed waste materials could use the model to efficiently sort and categorize waste, aiding in recycling efforts and potentially leading to more sustainable production practices.
