Problem Statement

As you probably know, there are many different sorting systems used by various manufacturers. It would be desirable to have a similar sorting system that uses multiple technologies to sort items, but that could easily be interchangeable with various items. Currently, recycling efforts are often costly, as humans need to sort single-stream recycling. It would be beneficial to have a system that sorts various plastic, paper, cardboard, glass, etc.
