Waste sorting is a task that many people work together to complete, which requires the time and energy of workers, and thus produces explicit or implicit economic costs. Garbage sorting also requires corresponding facilities: trash cans, temporarily placed sites, transportation vehicles, etc. The more precise garbage classification is, the more material and human resources are required, and the more difficult it is to invest in training and management, which may also lead to side effects such as resource depletion.
However, intelligent garbage recycling can greatly reduce the cost of garbage sorting and recycling, and the classification itself is used for the downstream garbage disposal. Intelligent garbage recycling must first classify garbage. There is a hidden danger of direct incineration of garbage without classification. For example, the moisture of the kitchen waste will directly cause it to be difficult to burn. Even if it is burned, it will emit black smoke containing pollutants. Incomplete combustion can lead to health problems at the time of final landfill disposal. Moreover, when burning plastic products, carcinogenic gases are generated, which pollute the environment. The “Internet of Things + Intelligent Garbage Sorting and Recycling System” for intelligent garbage sorting can encourage residents to sort garbage from the source, and then monitor every step of garbage sorting, transportation, and processing through big data.
