Swedish father and son duo build functional recycling machine operated by MAGPIES | SWNS
A Swedish father and his son have created a fully functional recycling machine run by the MAGPIES that live in their neighbourhood. Tomas Morsing, 57, came up with the idea several years ago but it wasn't until he retired that he found the time to develop the idea with the help of his 20-year-old son Olof. Tomas and Olof, from Gothenburg, Sweden, built the magpie feeder and recycler in February last year and they have been altering and improving their design since. The basic principle involves magpies picking up litter and placing it in a compartment where it is sorted so that seeds can be released for the hungry birds. As of January 2022, the father and son had recorded 5,000 magpies approaching the contraption to give their offerings and had collected between 1,500 and 9,000 pieces of litter. At the end of 2020, Tomas, who works in the pharmaceutical industry, started working part-time which enabled him to focus on new innovative projects. With the help of his son, who always had an interest in maths, programming, and engineering, the 57-year-old was able to bring his idea to life.

All that trash can have huge impacts on the environment. But modern landfills have found a new use for all that trash — they’re turning it into energy. In spite of their reputation as “dumps,” these landfills are feats of engineering, more akin to construction sites. One of North America’s biggest landfills lies on the outskirts of Las Vegas. The Apex Landfill is not only one of the country’s largest, it’s also one of the busiest. Because it serves a non-stop city, the landfill must operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It receives upwards of 16 million pounds of trash per day or 5 billion pounds per year. Landfills like Apex are required to deal with the toxic chemicals they produce, like methane, a greenhouse gas that’s 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide. At Apex, they capture that methane and turn it into energy that powers 11,000 homes in southern Nevada.
