The name ReKosh is derived from two words: “re” as in recycle, and “kosh,” which means “Bin” or “Box” in Bulgarian. Essentially, ReKosh stands for “a recycling box.”
ReKosh is a smart recycling box equipped with a touch screen and AI, recognising plastic and glass bottles as well as cans. It aims for campaign-specific collection goals, such as gathering 100,000 bottles.
Integrated with additional hardware and connected to a central server for synchronised operation, users can easily deposit bottles into ReKosh. It utilises a custom AI for precise object recognition, facilitating accurate recycling.
Upon reaching the goal, the collected materials are converted into funds, supporting company reinvestment and public causes like hospital equipment or assisting individuals in need.
We recognise that it’s easy for one to fall into a routine of work, home, television, and inactivity. We’re determined to break that mold. The blessings we enjoy today are the legacy of our forebears. To ensure a prosperous future for our children and subsequent generations, we believe it’s imperative to take action now.
