Plastic bottles and cans are anorganic waste that cannot be decomposed by bacteria naturally and take a long time decomposed. Until now, people awareness to care about the environment is still low. Even though waste sorting is very important before the waste recycling process. According to Kediri City Environment, Hygiene and Gardening Agency, waste such as plastic and cans require special treatment for the recycling process. Until now, the process of sorting waste is still done manually by humans. This process require a lot of energy, a long time and still cannot overcome the amount of the waste nowadays.

This research uses Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) method for object recognition. There have been other research about the classification of plastic waste. Both of studies only use plastic waste as the object. There is no studies yet about cans waste. Therefore, this research will carried out an introduction to plastic bottles and cans waste.

Based on the result of the study, the activation function that suits the case is ELU. While using four convolutional layers, four max pooling layers, and three fully connected layers in total. This study uses 0.00001 for the learning rate, 0.8 for the dropout rate, and 50 times epoch. The result from test that were done by using this CNN model architecture is an accuracy rate of 86%.
