FairPrice Group is partnering with A*STAR to launch a pilot program for smart waste sorting bins called BINgo. The goal of BINgo is to encourage people to recycle more and to do it correctly.

BINgo is a waste sorting system that uses AI and sensors to help people recycle metal cans, glass, paper and plastic packaging.
