Eva Harlou* designs a logo to represent E-waste recycling and a bin to collect it for proper disposal or recovery

In 2005 the U.S. generated over two million tons of electronic waste; 250,000 tons from New York City alone. That figure is projected to double in the decade to come. These obsolete or broken electronics are typically just dumped in with regular trash, though most of this E-waste contains toxic components that leech into the soil and poison the groundwater. Although our collective “green” conscience has certainly evolved, our infrastructure has not. We need a place to safely and easily deposit our E-waste: The 4th Bin.

In response to this clear need, and to coincide with the upcoming changes to New York City’s law’s regarding E-waste, Valiant Technology is calling for entries in an international competition. Your aim: to design a logo to represent E-waste recycling and a bin to collect it for proper disposal or recovery.

Project coming soon. Stay tuned!
