I am an undergraduate working on an internship project where I'm trying to design an effective way of collecting the waste from a captive colony of leaf-cutter ants, and I was wondering if anyone here had any experience in keeping ants and could give me some suggestions!

Waste collection is important not just to keep the colony relatively clean and disease free but also because recent studies suggest it may be collected and used to deter ants from crops and garden plants.

It is not very clear but I have attached an image of the current set-up, wherein the waste management system is a very simple placement of plastic containers stuck to bottom of the vivarium below the inhabited platform in order to catch any waste that is dropped.
