Making Recycling Fun and Easy

Problem

Recycling has been a low priority practice and often a burden to the individual households. 

This has led to:

  1. Contamination rates rising from 7% to 25% in the last decade. 

  2. China's decision to stop accepting contaminated recyclables from the US.

  3. High labor costs of sorting recyclables

What we are building

A fun and interactive waste sorter that automatically sorts recyclables and trash. 

We are applying cutting edge technologies like:

  • Internet of Things

  • Computer Vision
