Medical wastes in the hospital are often contaminated hence it is important for hospitals to create a well-planned recycling system that prevents pathogens and bacteria from spreading. Most medical waste is recycled manually, which could lead to contamination or pollution. The Automated Medical Waste Management System is equipped with a camera that records and analyzes medical waste. The information programs the center dispenser to tilt in a certain direction, allowing the medical waste to fall into the correct recycling bin.
