Drones will be used to track the rubbish war on British beaches.
During half-term, DRONES were employed to help count 123,000 pieces of rubbish on a beach.
The 1.5 tons discovered in Bournemouth were the result of only 20% of tourists. The drones were able to recognize 47 different forms of trash, and cameras were able to identify cigarette brands, resulting in the discovery of 47,467 butts.
Glass bottles made up a third of the collection in May, along with 6,578 plastic parts and 1,530 plastic bottles.
In an Italian resort, employing technology to strategically put bins and ashtrays, litter was reduced by 45 percent and cigarette waste was reduced by 69 percent.
The city of Bournemouth aims to learn from “people’s littering behaviors.”
