Description

Wastify is a mobile application for the iPhone that implements a custom image classification algorithm to classify waste in a fraction of a second, hands-free, and offline.


Wastify can classify waste into 5 categories:

- Garbage

- Recycling

- Compost

- Donation

- Transfer Station


Wastify provides subjective results depending on the waste: for donatable items, Wastify curates a list of nearby donation centers and provides one-tap directions, calling, and a website link for each center.
