Robotics for a Greener Tomorrow

At CleanRobotics, We Are Working to Make Recycling Smarter

The Challenge

Recycling can be difficult. Rules differ from place to place, and regulations change, leaving the recycler—you—confused. Recycling remains the one process that corporations cannot effectively measure. The burden of recycling is placed on individuals, reducing the effectiveness of recycling programs and resulting in recyclable material ending up in landfills.

Our Solution

What if there was a smart trash can that took care of recycling for you? What if you no longer had to know how to manually separate your recyclables? Trashbot™, our flagship product, intelligently separates recyclables, and can help monitor your waste management processes by dynamically analyzing the data about what you recycle.

The CleanRobotics Trashbot
intelligently automates recycling

Right now, we are diligently prototyping the Trashbot™, our flagship product.
