Rubbish is the Y-Combinator startup school graduate that helps you map, track, and clean litter. The mobile app works with local leaders, businesses, and residents to help beautify the local neighborhood. Rubbish utilizes machine learning and community engagement to find new and better ways to tidy up where we live and improve the quality of life for everyone.
The mobile app and patent-pending hardware cleans up litter while automatically taking a picture and documenting each piece of trash that is picked up. Rubbish collects this valuable data to create litter maps, analyze neighborhood trends, and optimize cleaning.
On this episode, we get to know Founders of Rubbish and their vision for the app.
