"This project was desinged to keep javelina and other wildlife from getting into garbage cans and creating litter. It is a common prolbem that affects many people in our neighborhood and community. I was able to engineer a gavity activated lock for trash cans lids that only opens when the garbage truck dumps it upside down. This is important becasue it will keep the envionment clean and animals safe while being convenient for the homeowner. "

  2. This is a super cool idea! I sure hope you’ve patented this because we need this solution in Southern Arizona! Thank you for your ingenuity!
