    I would like to see a law that requires restaurants to give a half size portion at half the cost of a full portion (which is too much to eat) when requested. This cannot be done currently.

    The solid waste industry, one of the most remarkable growth markets is the automated system, a factor that drives growth in the collection and recycling.Our technology combines a vision system based on artificial intelligence, robotics and digital inspection.The main advantage of our automated collection is its team of machines, because it works any time of day, 24 hours a day/365 days a year, receives no salary, only a little attention, generates profit, protects the environment, reduces green gas emission and the dependence for foreign oil. This is not rocket science is common sense
