On the website of the Small Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (MAN) it is noted that the application has a built-in database, a barcode scanner, the function of determining the location of the user and the estimated cost of secondary raw materials. The application is based on the European Parliament's Waste Directive. The program was tested by 10 people who filled out thematic questionnaires for 21 days.
