Know Where To Throw!

Welcome to ContaMiNot!

We built a working prototype of a waste disposal app using object recognition & machine learning to identify a piece of trash with a phone and have the app tell the user where to put their trash. With this app, we want to help the U-M community reach its 2025 sustainability goal of reducing landfill waste by 40%. In two days we built that working prototype, find out what we are going to do next!

“ContaMiNot connected their project to a U-M strategic goal. We really appreciated that. Will people really take their phones out to scan objects? I think they will.”
