Futuristic bin recycles food waste straight from your kitchen

A futuristic bin is tackling climate change and foul-smelling garbage at the same time.

The pioneering new system, called 'Mill', helps to curtail food waste, eradicate odours and even produce chicken feed straight from your kitchen.

The venture brings forward a "food-shrinking, de-stinking" trash receptacle that stops leftovers from ending up in the landfill.

Once food waste is discarded into the bin, Mill dries and grinds your leftovers overnight and produces what looks like coffee grounds by the morning. Except it isn't coffee, but rather chicken feed that is collected by the company and distributed to farmers.

The feed can be made from all types of waste, including produce, fish, dairy, eggs, rinds, pits, seeds, bones, napkins, filters, and paper towels.

To stop spillages from overfilling, Mill is equipped with shrinking capabilities that allow the grounds to take up as little space as possible. This means on top of saving the environment, it will also save you time as you won't need to take out the garbage for weeks.

Via a dedicated app, the equipment can track how full your bin is, and the scheduling of your collection, and it can tell you what can and cannot go into it.

There's no need to worry about odours as the device comes with a coconut-based charcoal odour filter that keeps your kitchen from smelling like rotten food.

The bin comes at $33 (£44) monthly, but its advantages make it a significant investment. The bin is an amazing way to lower your carbon footprint and help out those who are homeless or animals in need.
