This team developed a proposal and supporting software for a “Smartbin” system  to “collect organic food materials and weigh the amount of food waste, then calculate the amount of money lost individually and the financial loss for the school.”

We are hopeful that this and other innovative contest entries can be further developed to help address food waste at the University of Guelph and on other university campuses.
