Recycle Nation App for Civic Engagement

Have you ever wondered if an object you had was recyclable? A new tech solution from Recycle Nation addresses this issue.

  1. Sustainability Problem: Civic Engagement
  2. The following few points highlight 1800Recycling’s technology:
    • Recycle Nation created an application for your phone or other device
    • the app was formerly known as “My Recycle List”
    • it uses mapping technology to show areas where different materials can be recycled
    • it’s user-friendly filters allow you to search for locations that recycle a range of items
  3. Organizational Stakeholders: Technology developers, Mapping technology stakeholders, GIS analysts, Marketing and Business development team
  4. First 3 Steps to Deploy Technology: In deploying this technology, it would be important to establish app developers to continue to make updates to the application. Secondly, hiring a team of GIS analysts to continue to plot the upkeep of other recycling facilities and update the mapping data points. Lastly, I would implement a development team to promote the application as well as acquire financing.

Check out the link below for more information about the app.


Comment on Solar Bike Paths: I really enjoyed this article and this piece of technology. Solar panels generated 3,000 kWh in 6 months. This outperformed the threshold that was estimated in a lab due to prior testing. It seems that this technology could be easily deployed and has great benefits, despite the cost.

  1. This is an interesting idea, and not hard to deploy. It has a lot of educational value. The company could provide rewards for users who watched the tutorial or finished recycle something. This app could also partner with other recycle apps.
