Map the recycling facilities at Georgetown!
View Recycling Bins on Georgetown’s Campus in a larger map
In the sustainability survey Vox ran last week, many students reported being underwhelmed by Georgetown’s recycling capabilities. Students also said that a few items in particular—batteries, ink cartridges, and cardboard—were really hard to recycle on campus.
Can crowd-sourcing solve this problem?
Above is a map Vox has started of recycling bins across campus. It’s nowhere near comprehensive, because we want your help in identifying as many facilities as we can.
So if you’ve got a Google account, go to the map, click “Edit” in the left-hand column, and add as many markers for Big Bellies (which hold paper, glass, and aluminum) or recycling bins as you can.
We’re looking for all sorts of receptacles, but especially places where you can dump ink cartridges, batteries, and cardboard.
Feeling lazy? Just leave suggestions in the comments section, and Vox will add them. The key is to the right.
