1ST PRIZE € 5000 | DEADLINE 10/28/2012
***NEW UPDATE: The winners of Sort Your Trash Can has been found and notified.
Check out the winners on join.dk/#sortyourtrashcan
Vestforbrænding would like to thank all the contributors and congratulate the winners.
It is clear to us that you have all made an enormous effort. Vestforbrænding would like to continue the work with ideas for future trash cans and is currently working on a way that we can continue being inspired by you. – We will be in touch!
The average Dane generates about 624 kg. of waste per year. 12% of the daily waste is recycled and as Denmark’s largest waste mangement company, Vestforbrænding, we want to increase this amount.
By sorting our trash we can reduce our overall solid waste significantly, and we already have the facilities to start recycling more resources.
We know that people are much more inclined to sort their trash if the waste bin is placed close to their house – e.g. in their garage or next to their main entrance door. But having a large waste container just next to your kitchen window easily disrupt the harmony of the citizen’s ideal picture of a home.
Recycling starts with sorting our everyday trash and we need your help to make it easier.
If you are a student, then enter the contest at join.dk/#sortyourtrashcan and show us your version of a userfriendly outdoor sorting-can that fits the private Danish household.
