  2. 2. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Concept Development 3D Design Modeling Basic Packaging Studies Project Brief: Based on market trends and needs – Cascade Cart Solutions was seeking a product design answer to the growing industry of organic waste collection. With Waste Management and Harvest Power planning on launching 4050 composting facilities, Cascade Cart Solutions identified this event as a genuine opportunity to enter the organics collection sector with a clear design answer to the unique needs and design issues that comes with offering an organics container. Bazza Design was selected to work with Cascade to help define and shape design direction for a new organics cart that met a series of co-developed criteria, leading to a releasable design for production. Initial conversations on possible design criteria established the need for research investigation on a variety of fronts . In response to that need, Bazza Design looked at specific components of cart design and then ultimately helped set a design criteria list. The criteria list was used by Bazza Design in the creative design process for Cascade’s desire to offer a industry leading organics cart. Printed with permission by Cascade Cart Solutions
  3. 3. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Trends -Known as the three-stream sort approach, households are given three wheeled carts for commingled recyclables, organics and trash. In some instances, organics are collected weekly, with trash and recyclables collected on alternating weeks. -“We have delivered close to 1.5 million of our 13-gallon organics cart,” says Doug Hill of Norseman Plastics, manufacturer of the unit. “These green bin programs also distribute our countertop kitchen collector.” He adds that most bin setouts average about 10 lbs; few are as high as 20 lbs/setout. -Weight is the critical issue, as containers with food residuals get extremely heavy very quickly. Green Bin Plus Organics Container -The Green Bin Plus is the only cart of its size on the market today specifically designed for food waste collection. 10.5 Gallon Organic Waste Collection Cart
  4. 4. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Trends The organic portion of the waste stream contains yard waste and kitchen waste, each representing 25% of total waste generated (with geographic fluctuations). The average waste generated per household in North America is approximately 2,000 lbs per year* and it is estimated that about 50 percent of the total waste stream could be composted.** On average, residents who compost at home can divert a minimum of 650 pounds per year from the solid waste stream.*** Home composting is not only a viable and useful component of solid waste management but the most cost effective waste management option available. * EPA Characterization of Municipal Solid Waste in the United States: 1995 Update Statistics Canada, 2004 Waste Management Industry Survey U.S. Census Bureau Canada Post Householder Counts ** Composting Council of Canada ***Applied Compost Consulting 25 pounds of compostable / organics , bi-weekly
  5. 5. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Overall Competitive Set
  6. 6. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Related Areas of Design Handles and Latches Smart pivot keeps the handle flush when not in use and allows the design to extend on it’s axis. Soft touch over-mold or insert molded handle areas can add a touch of comfort that no one in the industry offers.
  7. 7. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Sophisticated Detail Related Areas of Design Integration Depending on the design theme – the hinging of the new organics container can be a new Cascade design feature that will brand future Cascade designs. Solid Mechanical Visuals Two Tone quality Precision
  8. 8. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research These wheels interface with a cool surface detail in the body of this luggage design Related Areas of Design Integration and Details These wheels are given more design respect, and as such play a more prominent role in the overall look of the products they are part of. Molded in detail is an opportunity to include the Cascade logo. Two tone wheel has integrated look to the design. 6 spoke shape is a Bissell standard. Trim part works with the Wheel shape and protects the bag Circle detail in wheel is a different visual.
  9. 9. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Themes Established Rugged Sophisticated Sturdy Detail Oriented Heavy duty sophistication Details pulled from inspiration The design is in the details for Embody. 1st in class for design appearance and theme
  10. 10. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Ribbing of form in this policeman’s leg armor suggests protection and structure. Themes Established Protective Seamless Integrated Heavy details denote protective look. Seamless pivot s integrated into the inner non visual area of these shades Crown’s fork lift is a smooth and integrated design in a heavy equipment package
  11. 11. Case Study: Organics Waste Cart Research Themes Established Heavy Duty Integrated Color Usage Cordless screwdrivers are a ultimate combination of slick design details, functional product features, and durability. Color usage is also key to the quality feel of these designs. Color breaks within the flow of the design is essential to the success of the design. Two shot grip details are integral to the visual an functional part of the handle.
