The Role of Technology in Protecting the Environment: Evaluating the Liquidity of Interactive Waste Bins

Fabiana Brasileiro, Jully Melo, José Filho, Lucas Marques

Abstract

Issues related to the pollution of ecosystems and possible alternatives for their preservation are present in various debates. Behavior analysis has been devoted to the study of sustainable social behaviors and cultural practices involved in such problems. In this perspective, the project presented is an evaluation of the effectiveness of the "Interactive Waste Bin", a prototype developed by the Nucleus of Information Technology Application (NATI) that emits a sound after trash disposal, developed as an alternative to traditional waste bins models. The hypothesis is that the use of "interactive waste bins" is more efficient for the acquisition and maintenance of the behavioral patterns sought, reducing pollution levels and their effects for future generations through the use of immediate social reinforcement. To achieve the proposed goal in the project, there will be experiments aimed at exposing people that walk inside UNIFOR to the equipment, called the "interactive waste bin". The volumetric monitoring tool contained in the bin will count the waste dumped. The study will contain a Baseline Session (SA1); Intervention Sessions (B) and Baseline Return Session (SA2), seeking to evaluate the maintenance of the obtained effect.
