A garbage bin dedicated to ‘Save the Turtles’, with sign posts to ‘save the environment’ and a model of a turtle made out of styrofoam at the top. The bin will consist of separators for different types of disposal waste which are known to harm turtles e.g bottle caps, plastic, general waste… as well as a light sensor to indicate when full. The sensor would alert the emptying of the bin as well as indicate that the area is busy, in which case the turtles will be monitored more closely by coastguards in the area.
