St. Paul recycling bins contain controversial tracking chip

There's something inside St. Paul's new recycling bins that residents may not have realized: a tracking chip.

The tiny electronic chips, known as RFID or radio frequency identification, allow recycling equipment to scan and identify the cart by passing a detector nearby.
