The Kiwi has different bins for the various waste streams common in household kitchens. Each of the bins is weighed to keep track of waste disposal patterns and provide encouraging feedback for proper waste management on the built in display.
Plastic waste often contains high volumes of air, causing the need for frequent emptying of the bin. Therefore the plastic bin is equipped with a shredder to make the volume of the plastic waste more compact.
Biodegradable waste contains a large amount of water, causing it to rot and smell when left in the bin too long. A way to slow this process down is by using the compressor to press the water out of the waste and into the connected drain pipe.
Each bin can easily be removed by lifting them out of the opened drawer.
