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.
We collect data from trash containers with a smart camera module that fits any container. By taking photos of waste deposited into the bin and using sensors to enhance the photo data we build a detailed data set.
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.
The current data in the waste management sector relies on arithmetics, reported figures, and ad-hoc checks. The data we collect is specific, accurate and verifiable. It can be used to improve the real conduct of all parties accountable.
Input turns into output, right? Sure, but do you realise that your main service or product is just a part of the story? We will help you see the value of your entire operations. Information about valuable secondary raw materials, contaminants, fill level, location and waste type can be used to increase efficiency and demonstrate the sustainability of your business.
Waste management companies charge for empty runs on bins that are contaminated or not full. To ensure you have an overview of the trash you generate will help your relationship with the waste management provider and educate people about sorting correctly, so that waste gets a second chance for nature.
