Open-Top Recycling Bins
Idea Submitted by: Nirsha Kanapathipillai - Medical Radiation Sciences
The recycling bins at the McMaster campus are shaped for plastic bottles, but the food court produces lots of plastic containers that are thrown in the garbage because they don't fit. The shape of the mouth should be changed or opened to completely to allow all recyclable materials to fit.
This would enhance sustainability at Mohawk by allowing all items that are recyclable to be placed correctly, and not end up in the landfill.
