Sharpen your pencils and grab a campus map (usually available in the main office of your school). It's time to take a walk to find all of the bins on your campus.
Each bin should be coded on your map using the following key:
|Bin Code||Bin Type|
|T||Large Trash Can for Landfill|
|To||Rolling Trash Toter|
|t||Small Trash Can|
|R||Large Recycling Bin|
|Ro||Rolling Recycling Toter|
|r||Small Recycling Bin|
|C||Large Compost Bin|
|Co||Rolling Compost Toter|
|c||Small Compost Bin|
|S||Large Special Waste Bin|
|So||Rolling Toter for Special Waste|
|s||Small Special Waste Bin|
Each individual bin that is properly labeled should be circled.
Co-located bins and waste stations are indicated by drawing a box around them (see example at right)
- Use color-coded sharp pencils or fine point pens to help keep track of the bins
- Use the binventory mapping activity as a class or club project
- Scan or photograph your binventory map to help you plan future distribution of bins.
