  •  
    •  
      • The problem: Contamination of recycling drop-off sites is a large existing problem and allows for mass amounts of recyclable materials to be improperly disposed of. We believe the people bringing the recyclables, want to do it right or they wouldn’t be doing it. Our goal is to better notify the citizens in a fun and simple manner. Currently the signage on the containers are confusing and often inconsistent, we want to reverse that. 
      • We’ve been given permission to develop a plan (color scheme, wording, etc.) to be presented to Allied Waste and the City of Stillwater. If they approve it, then we will have a big fun project ahead!
