Project ideas for waste management

I have a team of 7 and a project to complete by the end of this week to tackle a waste problem at our uni where general waste bins are being contaminated by various other items that can be recycled.

I need a solution to prevent that contamination and allow a high percentage rate of waste to be recycled rather than be thrown into general waste.

Things we can use: • Raspberry pi 3 b+ • Arduino uno • 3D printer

We also have a budget of £20 that we can buy stuff with to help.

Things that i thought of but have no idea how to implement:

• NFC tags on waste bins that open the right bin lid to recycle

Many thanks in advance!
