Introducing Trashbot
The first smart trash can that uses AI to sort recyclables from waste and so much more!

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. Waste handling remains the one process that corporations cannot effectively measure. The burden of recycling is placed on individuals, reducing the effectiveness of sustainability programs and results in recoverable material going to the landfill.

Our Solution

What if there was a robot that took care of recycling for you? What if you no longer had to manually separate your waste? Trashbot™, our flagship product, intelligently separates recyclables, and monitors your waste management processes by dynamically analyzing the data about what is disposed of in your building, city, or county.
