Description of my final project 

Recyclable or Organic?

Which is recyclable: a watermelon, or a glass bottle? Which is organic: coffee grinds, or a cardboard box? It’s a simple task for a human to answer those questions, but the goal of this project was to train a video camera on a conveyor belt at a trash facility to automatically recognize which items are recyclable and which are organic. By sifting and sorting, we can recycle more material and reduce methane exhaust at our landfills!
