Automatic detection of wrongly sorted waste.


The biggest problem of the recycling industry is waste getting mixed with non-recyclable materials. We built a system that helps recycling companies determine and locate households where recyclable waste is wrongly sorted.
We do this in real-time using a camera system attached to the garbage truck. The camera takes photos continuously during the collection process and uses a neural network to determine if the waste is contaminated. We notify the recycling companies (our customers) when and which address the wrongly sorted waste is picked up from with instant feedback for generators.
Our solution addresses the waste collecting problem at its root, making the process more efficient and less costly in waste management facilities.
