A drone with a camera that detects trash at open spaces and then sends the GPS of a place with a lot of trash to self driving trucks that are powered by solar with special scoops. These trucks then take the trash to a special sorting machine that recycles plastic and alternatively creates mulch from left-over foods, so that farmers can use this fertilizer for their farms.
