The solution creates space for more green areas that can be used for creating parks, walkways, bicycle tracks, and much more. The system also decreases the need for heavy waste collection trucks and reduced carbon emissions by up to 90 %, as the system automatically transports waste outside the living area in a sealed environment.

With so many people living in densely populated areas, keeping the streets and sidewalks free of litter and debris can be challenging. However, significant improvement in automated waste collection has made the waste collection more efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. Instead of relying on traditional methods of garbage collection, which involve manual labour and large trucks, automated systems use underground pipes to transport waste directly to a central location. This eliminates the need for street garbage trucks, reducing traffic congestion and air pollution. One of the most significant benefits of automated waste collection is that it is much more hygienic than traditional methods. Garbage trucks can be a breeding ground for bacteria and other harmful pathogens, but with automated systems, the waste is transported underground, away from people and animals. This makes the streets much cleaner and safer for everyone. Another advantage of automated waste collection is that it is more sustainable than traditional methods. By reducing the number of garbage trucks on the road, the city can save on fuel costs and reduce its carbon footprint. Additionally, because the waste is sent directly to a central location, it can be sorted and recycled more efficiently, reducing waste in landfills.
