50% of waste could be recycled

Janus sorts your waste automatically

50% of trash in the general waste could be recycled, while 25% of trash in the recycling bins is contaminated with unrecyclable waste. We present Janus, a bin that sorts waste automatically. Just throw your waste away, and let us take care of the rest. We guarantee to save your company 10% of your waste management costs. Early projections estimate possible reductions by 40%.

What can Janus do?

Reducing Waste Management Cost

Our bin will reduce the waste management cost by at least 20%.

Bleeding-Edge Technology

We use state-of-the-art sensors, developed in house just for this task, and we use newest AI research straight from our PhD.

Recycling Data

We can help you improve your decisions on waste management based on the data we collect for you.

Optimizing Cleaning Time

We can tell your cleaning team the optimal time to empty the bins.

Our values guide us to our goals and vision.
