Journal ATMD's Journal: 'Chip and bin' to measure waste

The BBC is reporting on new "technobins", using (presumably) RFID technology to log just how much rubbish the people of Alnwick, England, are throwing out.
From the article:

About 4,000 households in Alnwick will take part in the five-month project to monitor how much rubbish is recycled. Special equipment fitted to refuse vehicles will read the chips in the bins and instantly record the amount of recycled waste.
