The project is located on the Christ University campus which strives to achieve a ‘Zero Waste Campus’, by managing most of their waste internally. Our task was to study the current source and disposal of all the different kinds of waste, the current systems in place and to improve its efficiency.
We found out that low segregation of waste at source is one big reason for reduced efficiency, for which the university currently appoints labor to segregate manually. The intention was to increase the responsibility of the students in handling their own waste. We designed an interactive ‘Waste-Wall’ which has information for the user to properly segregate the waste into 4 categories. Along with it, an urban furniture unit was created, which has printed information on it, to spread awareness about the problem of waste and the linear economy.
