NECESSARY STEPS

image59

1.  Pass a policy requiring package manufactures to print a colored dot on their  packaging or place a colored sticker.

2.  The color of each dot will correspond entirely with the section the item must be disposed in.

3.  Seattle could receive utility credits for the number of pounds adequately recycled.

FACTS

image60

1.  No need to replace existing waste bins or collection trucks.

2.  Each bin and collection truck receives a three-part divider.

3.  The lid for the small bins, large collection bins, and collection trucks is a sliding and rotating lid—meaning the user can turn or shift it and dump proper materials into each corresponding section.
