A fourteen-year-old from Pitadeniya in Dehiowita has been able to produce a heat dustbin which has the capacity to demolish waste contains COVID-19 within a matter of five minutes.

A student of Ananda College, Colombo – Himantha Randiva Wimalaratne has included software made by him which enables to change the temperature of the heat dustbin from time to time.
“The World Health Organization has observed that the virus can be destroyed at 60 Celsius, and when someone sneezes the people have been instructed to use a tissue and put it into a dustbin. The customers who are coming to our shop are following this instruction. So, if a person who has Covid-19 puts a tissue into a garbage bin, there is a possibility of others coming to the shop and us – who are cleaning the dustbin, catching the virus. This is what made me create this heat dustbin,” the Ananda boy told.


“The heat inside the dustbin kills the virus once someone inserts something into it. This could be activated through power or battery and its default temperature is 60 Celsius, but with the software one could change the temperature. Even without the software, this could be done with the right devices. This could be made for an amount of Rs. 3000. So, at a time like this when the whole world is fighting Covid-19, I hope a heat dustbin like this could be helpful to people,” the 14-year-old added. Himantha has also produced 13 more devices of this nature and is willing to contribute further should an organization or a person is willing to support. He also has a youtube channel namely WorldInova through people could watch his work.
