but i wonder what happens when somone throws something away accedentally like a kid playing with the system?
Now while this isn't 'new' tech I would wonder why it's not been implemented on a wider scale?
"About 8,000 residents on a north London estate are to use vacuum-powered chutes to dispose of their rubbish rather than leaving it in bags for collection.
It is hoped the system will cut mess and increase recycling at Wembley City.
Items must be separated into colour-coded containers before they are dropped into the corresponding chutes.
The waste will then be sucked through a series of pipes at 70km/h (43mph) to a central collection point, where it will be picked up twice a day.
The system has been used in more than 30 countries and originated in Sweden in the 1960s."
