Waste in municipal and household bins has a lot of valuable data waiting to be extracted from it.

Issues such as contamination leads to needless landfilling and incineration, waste management companies driving half-empty pickup runs and governments not having any verifiable data about the sector are all issues WasteLocker is addressing.


Data collection

We collect data from trash containers. By taking photos of waste deposited into the bin and using machine learning to gather statistical data we build an effiecient algorythm.


The gathered data is used as input for our AI driven human-in-the-loop software solution. The information is aggregated and statistics can be provided about the fill level, contents and other parameters.


Statistics and analysis from the AI based solution is the core of our business. The We can tailor the information to the client’s needs and present a waste quality audit to help you to take an educated decision and optimise processes or educate people.

Decisions – both policy and business – are meaningless without trustworthy data



WasteLocker cares. This is why in February 2023 we decided to start cooperating with Toidupank.
The terms are simple: all of the revenue generated from public waste container feedbacking and citizen education in Nõmme is donated to Toidupank*.

For you as a citizen, this means that each picture you take** donates 50 cents to those in need. 

You can help clean up our planet, educate others and also supporting Toidupank!

*The partnership applies only to the designated public waste containers that have a WasteLocker QR code sticker on them. 

**The picture has to be taken from the contents of the waste containers. To take the picture, scan the WasteLocker QR code and upload the picture.50 cents per picture is donated until 100 pictures are reached. From there, the residual revenue is split equally between the remaining amount of pictures. 

Tartu City

In Tartu City WasteLocker deployed its first solution for city goverments as a pilot project. Waste flow mapping and sorting education is provided with the goal of increasing sorted waste volumes and gathering verifiable statistics.

Nõmme District

In collaboration with Nõmme district in Tallinn, WasteLocker is offering a waste mapping and waste sorting eduction service utililzing community engagement by provinding an application to gather photos with smartphones.


Nordea is one of the first ones to try out WasteLocker's innovative data-driven waste reporting service for the office utilizing stationary cameras. WasteLocker provides a small, but important part of eventual ESG reporting.
