This intelligent waste management system integrates classification, interaction, and centralized processing. Suitable for large multi-story malls, this system utilizes AI artificial intelligence to identify the type of waste when people dispose of it, accompanied by facial expressions and audio reminders.This aims to strengthen people's awareness of waste sorting. Additionally, the system possesses efficient centralized processing capabilities, resulting in effective savings of both manpower and resources.

This product draws inspiration from elevators, presenting a clean and elegant appearance that seamlessly integrates with the minimalist style. The design is sleek and concise, incorporating practicality while discarding unnecessary embellishments, adhering to the "less is more" design principle and showcasing a unique design style.

From a technical perspective, modern technology has already provided the necessary features for this product, including emoji display, voice assistant, intelligent sensors, and precise recognition. The continuous advancement of these technologies provides a solid foundation for achieving centralized waste sorting and processing.

Looking into the long term, centralized waste sorting and processing systems have the potential to reduce urban cleaning costs, increase resource recycling rates, and decrease dependence on landfills, thereby saving management and operational expenses. Moreover, some governments and businesses may be willing to invest in such systems to achieve environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

The device is customized with dedicated channels for different shopping malls, employing modular design for convenient transportation and low maintenance costs. At the end of each channel, there is a waste sorting container that is easy to dismantle and transport. Drawing inspiration from the principles of elevator conveyance, it ensures timely transportation of all waste to a centralized processing location, effectively addressing the issue of "garbage congestion" caused by small bin capacities and delayed transport. This not only has no impact on the air environment but also significantly enhances the user's garbage disposal experience.
