Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) will be put to use in the Greater Moscow area of Russia to detect garbage that is violating waste-disposal laws.

According to a report on The Voice of Russia, the State Technical Supervision Body will fly the UAS over a same area of the region on a weekly basis to look for garbage and rubbish piles, landfills, and dumps.

These inspectors, with the help of environmentalists from flying clubs, currently use helicopters in their searches.
