With technology expanding it was finally the time where a company like Waste Management launched a new garbage can. This garbage can is not the average garbage can it can sense when the garbage is filled, when it is empty, and when it almost filled. The garbage can has solar panels which gives the garbage can energy to crush the recyclable waste. Instead of emptying the trash one or two times a week garbage men pick them up every 1 to 3 weeks.  These trash can are currently being tested in Dayton Ohio in high traffic bus stops in the city.  Currently that is the only place where the high tech cans are being used. There are four or five of them. For one can it is 4,000 dollars each. Hopefully in the future more of these cans can be implemented to save money in the long run and help reduce waste.
