Taking out the trash should be a no-brainer. Instead, it is a confusing chore with a steep learning curve. Worse, experience with any particular trash can in any given locality in no way translates to an understanding of any other receptacle — so essentially each candy wrapper requires that you start from scratch.
Team Zero-Waste proposes the creation and implementation of universally-recognized color- and shape-driven iconography onto the cans themselves, coordinated with matching product packaging standards. The SF Zero Waste Recycling Bin is simple, interactive, and consistent, providing better efficacy in our recycling process.
