Applying artificial intelligence to waste classification for combating climate change

DeepWaste is an easy-to-use mobile application that leverages powerful artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to provide accurate and instantaneous waste classification

We have made it easy for you to quickly and accurately dispose of your waste 

Simply point your phone camera from the DeepWaste App to any item you are about to throw 

Get instantaneous classification on whether the item is recyclable, compostable, or trash

Throw the item as per the DeepWaste App classification. Provide feedback within the App if you think the classification was incorrect.

DeepWaste is currently designed to perform best within the regional municipality rules of San Mateo County. We aim to extend DeepWaste to more municipalities in the near future.

 

We are currently crowdsourcing a database of 10,000 images of recyclable, compostable, and trash items to improve the accuracy of DeepWaste.

Help us grow this dataset via DeepWaste. Take a photo of a waste item, easily annotate that image, and upload it via DeepWaste

Our mission is to provide fast, accurate, and low-cost waste classification that is universally accessible at the time of waste disposal to combat climate change

If DeepWaste can even reduce erroneous waste disposal by 1%, it will be equivalent to removing over 6.5 million gasoline-burning passenger vehicles from the road
