Tracking Trash – MIT Project Aims to Raise Awareness of How Garbage Impacts the Environment

What if we knew exactly where our trash was going and how much energy it took to make it disappear? Would it make us think twice about buying bottled water or “disposable” razors?

A team of MIT researchers today announced a major project called Trash Track, which aims to get people thinking about what they throw away. Trash Track relies on the development of special electronic tags that will track different types of waste on their journey through the disposal systems of New York and Seattle. The project will monitor the patterns and costs of urban disposal and create awareness of the impact of trash on our environment – revealing the last journey of our everyday objects.

With this project, the MIT SENSEable City Laboratory seeks to couple high-tech, rapidly evolving technology with an everyday human activity: trash disposal. Trash Track builds on some of the lab’s previous projects – including Real Time Rome and the New York Talk Exchange – gathering, assessing and analyzing real-time data to improve urban functionality. … More Tracking Trash – MIT Project Aims to Raise Awareness of How Garbage Impacts the Environment
