Check the weather or stock quotes as you recycle … say, what?

Punch line: New smart recycling bins provide consumers with added benefits – LCD display, Wi-Fi connectivity, weather forecasts, and even stock prices. These smart bins are being rolled out in London, NY, Singapore, and Tokyo.

Excerpted from psfk.com, “London’s New Smart Recycling Bins Come With LCD Displays & Wi-Fi

In preparation for the 2012 Olympics, London will introduce 25 high-tech ‘smart bins’ placed around the city.

These recycling bins will be embedded with an LCD display on each side and come integrated with Wi-Fi connectivity.

The screens will constantly change to display different information, ranging from weather forecasts to stock prices.

In addition, these high-tech bins are also bomb-proof.

At $1,880 each, they aren’t cheap compared to traditional outdoor recycling bins that are usually between $200-500.

The smart bins won’t only be seen in London, but are also expected to be implemented in other metropolitan cities including New York, Singapore and Tokyo.
