Choosing a Recycling Bin Style


Football StationsFootball StationsLivermore High School investigated styles of recycle stations to make it as easy as possible to separate recycle-able plastic and aluminum from material that will end up in the land fill.

In the stadium, athletes are on the move and toss materials into cans from a distance. For this reason, a station was sought with clear instructions and two big openings. The school's bin vendor, Midpoint Recycling Solutions, suggested using a design started by the Maryland football team. This way athletes can toss materials into clearly marked containers and shoot a basket at the same time.
