WeRecycle is a platform to facilitate communication about waste between citizens and and their community. It consists of a community-built map of outdoor and event trash cans and recycle bins and a mobile app. WeRecycle supports the US EPA’s Recycling on the Go Initiative and allows you to:
1.Find the nearest trash can or recycle bin
2.Log or map trash cans or recycling bins for your community to use
3. Map temporary trash cans and recycle bins for large events (e.g., concerts, meetings, sporting events)
4. Express a need for a trash can or bin at a particular location
4. Hear from citizens who are requesting a public trash or recycle bin
The community based map is beginning at the University of Georgia where all of the trash cans and recycle bins have been logged. WeRecycle is developed by the University of Georgia Faculty of Engineering with funding from the Environmental Research and Education Foundation.
The app has been updated to run on the most recent hardware/devices.
