episode 36: (re)Cycled

Where others see garbage, Ayoola sees opportunity

Connecting informal waste collectors to the source. This app does it – cycled. Today we have a very enlightening talk with our friend of the Giraffe Heroes Foundation, Ayoola Brimmo. We talked about waste in Nigeria, smart bins and the Cycled App. This App helps users who want to recycle more, and reduce their General Waste collection bill, by using a SmartBin. The “SmartBin”, Ayoolas innovation, uses image recognition, and artificial intelligence, to recognize waste items thrown into it and sorts individual material types into separate inner bins. Learn about Ayoolas personal motivation, about what it needs to achieve a paradigm shift regarding our waste production and how he and his team are trying to contribute.
