Title
(EN) RECYCLABLE CONTAINER VERIFICATION SYSTEM
Abstract
(EN) A recyclable container verification method to be carried out by a processor, comprising the steps of: retrieving container identification information from a recyclable container, wherein the container identification information comprises information to uniquely identify a container; retrieving collection identification information which identifies a collection point for receiving recyclable containers; identifying whether a relative location of the container and the collection point is within a proximity threshold; accessing a database comprising container identification information for a plurality of containers and collection identification information for a plurality of collection points; comparing the retrieved container identification information and the retrieved collection identification information to entries contained within the database; and, if the retrieved container identification information and the retrieved collection identification information are entered in the database and if the relative location is within the threshold: outputting an entry into the database which associates the container with the collection point, such that a container is deemed recycled only when a notification is received in proximity of a suitable collection point.
