One person's is another person's treasure! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle by giving life to everyday items.
This will be a passive program around Foodworx and Sixth Market that will help students decide where to put their waste. Currently, there are trash cans available with a very general outline of what goes where. This program aims to simplify that and make it more applicable to Foodworx and Sixth Market products especially since Foodworx is unlike other dining halls.

One of the main motivator is that the residents will be able to see progress of their recycling because community goals will be created to buy things with the money accumulated.
A flyer was made and posted to every fridge on move in day about what should be recycled and what should not be recycled.
