      Beautify the streets with brightly-colored public art
      Promote proper waste disposal practices
      Foster a sense of community among students and long-term residents in Collegetown
    • Replacement of Current Trash Cans

      Applicants and Judging
    • Education
      of student residents on proper waste disposal times and practices
      A crucial factor for the success of this project lies in addressing the lack of knowledge of proper trash and recycling disposal practices such as:
      Our education campaign will focus on:
      Creating pamphlets for landlords to hand out to new residents
      Creating and promoting a website with trash and recycling information all in one easy and accessible place
      Educational materials will be distributed upon installation of the new waste receptacles as well as at the beginning of the new semester.
    • Education
      Crucial times to educate students on proper waste disposal
      Moving in
      To inform them of weekly/monthly trash and recycling disposal times and
      Locations for trash tag purchasing
      Moving out
      Proper disposal of large objects and lightly used reusable objects (Dump and Run)
      Proper disposal of trash if students will be leaving before trash day
      Moving out and Moving in
