Recycling Bins Pilot at Ikenberry (Completed)

Project History

  • 4/20/2015

    This project is complete.  The bins and the process were supposed to return to the pre-project status as of April 15.  That means the round bins can be taken away. 

  • 4/3/2015

    Bart (ISTC) talked to Ron (Grounds) about reversing the bins on the Ikenberry project after one week.  The project actually started the morning of April 1 so  it would be great to have the bin placement reversed on the morning of April 8th.

Description

A project is planned for March to evaluate a new outdoor recycling station in comparison to existing bins with revised signage.  Housing has the station located inside the entrance of Ikenberry Commons.  For the project, that station will be placed outside along the North entrance, directly across from the existing bins.  After one week, waste audits will be conducted on both stations, the stations will then reversed, and the experiment will run for another week.  The project looks to compare the recycling and contamination rates of the two station types.  Results will aid in the decision making of future bin purchases.
