Rootstrap partnered with Abito, an Uruguayan company that works with schools and businesses to help them recycle. Abito promotes the revaluation of waste by facilitating the classification at source and the transport of waste so that it can be recycled and composted.
Abito has an effective classification system that breaks trash into the following categories:
- Compostable items
- Paper & Cardboard
- Recyclable items
- General Trash
To help Rootstrap begin training the model they provided the Montevideo office with the necessary trash bins for classifying garbage correctly.
