Team C Recycles

  1. 1. Herricks Team C: Noel Forte, Melissa Label, Dana Long, Ana Elisa Lopera, Antonella Melisi Danielle Parlatore, Susan Quintyne, Doug Rottkamp
  2. 2. The Recycling Project <ul><li>As a group, we have decided to create an interdisciplinary unit that focuses on the amount of waste products we produce on a daily basis. </li></ul><ul><li>After gathering this data, we plan facilitate a community based project that seeks to reduce this amount of waste through various recycling programs. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Types of Waste <ul><li>For this project, we will focus on three types of waste: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cans/Bottles </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Paper products </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>E-Waste (e.g. old computers and other assorted electronic devices) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. School/Community Involvement <ul><li>In order to increase awareness, we would ask students to do the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Take a guided tour of a landfill. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Take a guided tour of a recycling facility. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Weigh the total amount of paper waste accumulated on a typical school day. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Conduct research on e-waste that defines e-waste, examines the health concerns as well as the global/economic issues that arise from e-waste. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Community Partners <ul><li>Work with local businesses (e.g. Target, Best Buy, Circuit City) in order to set up designated “drop off days” when people can dispose of old electronic equipment properly. </li></ul><ul><li>Talk to local, elected officials in an attempt to increase public awareness. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Technology Tools <ul><li>Video documentation of the project that would require the use of video editing software and the creation of a vodcast. </li></ul><ul><li>A public website to make vodcasts and other important information (i.e. important events, websites) available. </li></ul><ul><li>A Powerpoint or Photostory that seeks to educate those unfamiliar with e-waste </li></ul>
  7. 7. Reflection/Assessment <ul><li>To monitor our success, we will set up a blog that will record the data collected as well as the reactions from the community at large. </li></ul>
