As well, with the help of the MP funded S4C grant, Millie has developed the Bin Buddy initial prototype, which encourages proper disposal of rubbish through positive behaviour reinforcement techniques. In the future the innovation will be equipped with a sensor to sense when a bin is full and almost overflowing, alerting Council via an app 📱. Noosa Environmental Education Hub is working with Good Shepherd’s Sustainability Group to affect a whole school waste strategy that will see Millie’s device assist with increasing the school’s recycling and containers for change initiative 👍👉𝗖𝗔𝗟𝗟 𝗢𝗨𝗧 - 𝗠𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗰𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗶𝗻𝗱𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘆 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗻𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽𝘀.
