Quarantine Garbage Bin is a new kind of garbage bin that does not allow overflowing garbage to enter the environment when the garbage bin reaches above its holding capacity. Overflowing of garbage is very challenging in almost every city of the world. In densely populated cities, it is obvious there is a higher consumption of goods and products. This result in massive amount of garbage. Since the garbage bin's holding capacity is limited, we usually see overflowing garbage in the street just like the picture on this challenge overview page. This is a very critical problem because it affects society directly.

This project solves this problem. The garbage bin is enclosed in a hard transparent plastic bag. On its edge, the transparent plastic bag has a hard plastic structure for support. This small structure looks like a box like transparent plastic booth reaching up to a height of an average person. The garbage bin is placed inside this booth. Since the booth has opening at its side, the person throwing the garbage can put the garbage through the opening of the booth into the garbage bin. This way if the garbage bin reaches above its holding capacity, the garbage will overflow but not on the street. The booth will act as a collector of the overflowing garbage. This will assist workers to collect the garbage easily, make our city clean, safe and cost-efficient. Currently, I have done the design of the bin. I need funding to build the prototype.

This invention is 100 percent unique. The current garbage bins do not have a solution to overflowing garbage. The best garbage bins have just a gate at its top to close when they reach its climax holding capacity. But this does not solve because other garbage will have no choice if there is no alternative garbage bin. This mechanism will help us maximize the holding capacity of garbage bin, solve an overflowing problem on cities, lower cost, safety and so on.

    I have dedicated my life for invention and research because not only I have big dreams but also it is my only way out of poverty. We all have a talent we know or did not find out yet. Mine happens to be inventing. I discovered this talent of mine when I was in second year student during my university life. Starting from that point everything seemed not important except creating new ideas. So, until now I have invented more than 50 inventions which are new to the world and the rest are intended for Ethiopia that will change the life of many people including mine. But because of poverty, theft and many reasons I could not manage to make it. But all that matter is I will never give up. I will invent until and after I become successful. That makes me a strong entrepreneur. My skills are aided with a mechanical engineering degree on design, production and sales expertise.
