We can be sure this kind of solution will be largely deploy in a very close future. By extension we can imagine adding a robot to manage the last meters between the truck and the container. One project, called ROAR robot line-drawing, is working on this concept. And what about a container-drone, able to self-move in front of your house when the day of collect arrives and the container is (almost) full.

With a new business model with a payment per type of refuse and kilogram thanks to your connected different containers (solution are already available), you can easily imagine that refuse management ecosystem will be soon disrupted.
