Tomorrow, Rubbish will be exhibiting at Startup Grind Global Conference. In addition to exhibiting at the conference, Rubbish will be working with Startup Grind and the Fox Theater Team to extend their sustainability initiatives by placing QR codes in bathrooms and on trash bins throughout the conference so attendees may alert staff of maintenance needs. The Rubbish team’s event maintenance program will provide the Fox Theater Team with valuable insights to help with future event planning and litter management strategy.
The Rubbish platform empowers businesses and neighborhoods to tackle litter at the local level by utilizing the Rubbish iOS app, eye-catching, the patent-pending Rubbish Beam, and data science. The app photographs and categorizes liter by type and location, allowing us to build maps of litter trends to implement solutions and create litter-free communities.
Startup Grind’s influx of entrepreneurs will share a lot of innovative ideas and any litter left behind will be mapped, tracked, and picked up to provide the Fox Theater Team with valuable insights for this event and to help them plan to be more sustainable for future events.
