At Lasso, we’re on a mission to transform the way the world recycles. We’ve designed a home system that gives you full control of your recycling, creating valuable new products from your used plastics and other packaging materials.
The Lasso appliance uses sensor technology to analyse packaging and containers as they enter the system in order to keep recycling streams pure. The appliance then washes, granulates and separately stores the resultant materials for collection and, ultimately, sale to the secondary market.
To better understand the likely amount of plastic, glass and metal materials used by residents in our our initial launch area, we are conducting a 1-week recycling survey in the San Francisco Bay Area. The information from the survey will underpin important decisions in our product, marketing and financial development.
The aim of the survey is to determine the variability between households in the amount of recyclable used-materials generated.
We will provide participants with a bag to collect their dry recycling and trash for one week. At the end of the week, we will pick up the bag from the participant’s home. Following collection, the Lasso team will categorise and weigh the different materials collected.
