When you walk your dog you scan your phone over the waste and a Amazon like delivery system picks it up.



 This system would function like a heath APP on your phone that would graph your location through phone scanning and locate your pets waste. Then your pets waste could be consumed by a robot and delivered to a electrical generation plant. The electricity that would be generated can be used to help eliminate waste using a robotic waste treatment plant ultimately evaporating and recycling waste. New methods of trash elimination could be adopted with robotic dog waste fees. Like self driven electric boats to skim ocean surface for spills and plastic debris.

Category of the action

Reducing emissions from waste management

What actions do you propose?

 You would eliminate plastic bags used for dog waste. It could also teach people the importance of energy consumption versus energy savings. Savings will not be the purpose of why we can not live a sustainable and trash free lifestyle.  We will use waste as an opportunity for progress and a reason to work together to reach a common goal. Robotic Trash islands could become an idea worth talking about for world wide common ground on trash evaporation.  

Who will take these actions?

 Individuals will have to grow a custom to phone scanning there pets waste and being able to have cheaper energy bills. Landfills will be able to store less waste and be supplied with free energy for better waste disposal  of robotic demolition. It could become a trend that one day will eliminate waste on earth. 

Where will these actions be taken?

 There's no reason this can't be used for ocean plastic debris, around the world. With free energy trash will become affordable to collect.

What are other key benefits?

 Limit plastic bag waste.

How much will emissions be reduced or sequestered vs. business as usual levels?

 I like to believe in Zero emissions and Zero waste recyclables.

What are the proposal’s costs?

 Not sure of peoples interests.

Time line

 I see less waste, open landfills and better understand of negative drive turned into positive workforce.
