The Problem

Too much trash is being blown around EVERYWHERE because of inefficient trash bins and recycling bins. Sometimes, you can't even find any recycling bins anywhere! Restaurants usually just throw away the recyclables due to a lack of recycling bins. Also, there is no room to recycle batteries nearby!

Our Plan

We are making more tightly-shut garbage/recycling cans (that can still open, of course, but only with the push of a button) and putting more recycling bins around the town! We will implement recycling bins for batteries as well in grocery stores and gas station stores, or other commonplaces that people gather in. This idea came from Iceland!
