Tracking Trash

| |

Do you know where your trash ends up?  MIT researchers are seeking to answer this question by attaching tiny tracking devices to 3,000 pieces of trash in Seattle.  The tracking devices are the size of a matchbook and each volunteer household will attach them to 10-15 pieces of trash.  The trash is disposed of normally.  The tracking devices will relay data back to MIT computers where the travels of the trash as it travels to its final destination will be analyzed.  The final results of the study will be made public on September 18 at Seattle’s Central Library.
