Executive Summary

The Hub bin installation is a useful tool to help educate students, staff, faculty, and visitors about recycling and composting. Currently the installation has three bins that are synced up to a set of screens that tell users how their proper waste disposal affects the environment. Unfortunately, the current bins are too small, difficult to service, have a limited capacity, are visually unappealing, and cannot handle the amount of foot traffic and waste. By noon, the bins are completely overflowing, deterring people from using them. By redesigning and expanding the HUB bins, it will allow for more users to interact with the full installation while encouraging proper waste managing habits.
