Project Description


Three-quarters of people have admitted that they have littered in the past five years. There are many recycling mobile applications, but they primarily focus on just finding recycling locations using Google Maps. Our mobile application includes different types of waste disposals and combines maps with crowd-sourcing, environmental education, and incentives. We will evaluate our solution by seeing whether people can find waste bins when they need them, add any that were not in our application, learn useful environmental facts, and overall reduce littering. This will benefit everyone on campus, since it will be a cleaner campus, and hopefully will have an even greater reach; app users will become more environmentally friendly, and reduce littering wherever they go.
