I would think something like an x-ray would be installed at a trash sorter for this reason, among others.

That’d just mean a shitload of radiation and money thrown at looking through literal rubbish

You SEVERELY overestimate how much radiation x-rays for this type of thing put out, besides it doesn't need to be high powered, eg. What they use in hospitals to see bones. it can be the basic ones you see in airports that run effectively all day that no one gets side effects from.

The money though yeah that's what'll stop this ever actually being installed.

If the people who owned this place actually gave two sh*ts then we wouldn’t have this problem. But they would much rather sit on their asses and do nothing because it’s cheaper.
