While not yet officially confirmed, we understand that a few changes will be taking place at Epcot's Innoventions East in Future World.  First up, the "Don't Waste It" exhibit presented by Waste Management is expected to be closing soon. Directly opposite that exhibit, 'The House of Innoventions" will be returning to show guests some all new technologies around the home.

Don't Waste It presented by Waste Management Corporation
"Don't Waste It" features interactive games that challenge guests to recycle, reduce, recover and reuse "virtual waste" to create energy that fuel our homes and communities. In "Sort it Out" guests load their digitized trash onto a virtual conveyor belt and sort out the recyclable plastic, paper, metal and glass. During "Fuel the Burn" guests simulate working in a waste-to-energy plant to create electricity to power a community. Guests work together to keep virtual furnaces burning at the optimal temperature to create electricity. In "Landfill Up" guests work together to create a new environment by building and rehabilitating a landfill area. At the end of the experience guests will see the total amount of energy and electricity they created with their trash.

The House of Innoventions
Breakthrough technology brings online entertainment and other Internet content into everyday devices and appliances in "The House of Innoventions." The House of Innoventions is a tour that's filled with innovative products that provide added comfort, security, convenience, entertainment and overall control to our homes and our lives.
