  • How Trashly came to be

    Each member of the Trashly team cares deeply about sustainability, and if each of us does our small part - we can make an more positive impact on the environment. It all started when our product owner, Elvin Rakhmankulov, asked a simple question that became the leading design statement behind our product: "How can I recycle this object?" With his personal experience in Machine Learning, Elvin understood that an Android device could be used to examine an image captured from the camera, and determine it's composition.

“Our goal was not to advise on how to get rid of the item but how to RECYCLE it properly and responsibly. If an item is completely non-recyclable we recommend a few alternative ways for disposal.”
