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. 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.
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.
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.
