The City of Cleveland is spending $2.5M to equip recycling bins with microchips in an attempt to become more green.

The municipality is going to give each household two different garbage cans: one for rubbish, one for recyclables. Each will have a micro-chip inside.

This is all part of a new automated trash collection system. Micro-chips will be placed in both your recycling bin and your waste bin. Each chip generates a report that tells the city how efficient their waste collection services are. But it will also tell them if you’re using your recycling bin.
