artifact description
The goal of this project, conducted for the Cambridge DPW, was to create a model to be used by other Cambridge and other cities and towns to increase efficiency of their current rubbish management system while also increasing awareness of the social implications involved. We created a twelve step methodology that can be adapted to fit any city or town by taking into consideration the unique attributes. In creating this method, we prepared recommendations for new routes for some zones in Cambridge.
