Envirobot Recycler

The Enviobot Recycler is a mini robot that recycles standard size pop cans, easily and efficiently. The way in which the robot works is that we have a motorized guide with feelers that picks up the can and moves it to the crusher system. We designed the crusher to squeeze the can by moving the guide rail to the crusher component thereby crushing the can completely. Then, the rail guide lowers and then spews out the can into the recycling bin. With the importance of recycling today, we see every household in the near future having a mini recycler which would be a useful household item promoting recycling.
