Needs Assessment

As most of my residents recycle already, I decided that in most recycling programs they ask you to recycle without a goal in the end. So I decided to have a goal. Depending on how much we raise in funds from recycle would depend on the activity we do at the end of the quarter or year whichever they choose. This gives residents the choice of what they would like to do instead of a Resident Adviser telling them they will be doing it. They are adults so they can decide for themselves.

Most people forget to recycle so having a place for them to be able to recycle is easier. Even going around to room to room to collect.
