Rewarding recycling with discounts for local buisnesses and online stores.

It´s a cellphone application that rewards your recycling with discounts to online sites such as Netflix, Spotify, etc., and local buisnesses. We will create special garbage cans (organic, inorganic, recyclable= that will detect the ammount of waste you deposit in them and reward you for that ammount (if you deposit the wrong type of waste in the bag the points will be nullified and you will be forced to place the garbage in the place they belong). We´ll also get in contact with garbage trucks so that when they pick up your waste, they will check if it´s separated properly. If it is, you will gain points, if not you gain 0 points and your garbage will not be taken until you fix it (you won´t get points even after you fix it).
