Meeting the demand for organic waste recycling is time-consuming and costly, and not to mention, a dirty job making it difficult to maintain a full staff. These reasons can feel insurmountable as barriers for cities looking to add organic waste recycling to their curb-side residential services. Waste Robotics has a solution for that: throw it all in the same bin with your recyclables and garbage – or in other words, residents simply place their organic waste in separate, recyclable bags along with their weekly trash pick-up saving money on bins, trucks, and drivers and allowing you to operate routes more efficiently.
Our robots are programmed to recognize bags that contain organic wastes, and effectively sort and separate these bags from garbage and single-stream recycling. They sort fast and efficiently (ie. up to nine tons per hour per robot) limited only by how fast you can add more waste to be sorted! The recovered organics can them be sent for composting or for anaerobic digestion and the production of biogas. There is no need for separate bins, additional trucks, or extra staff.
