What is the problem you found?

How might we promote recycling while supporting the local community financially?

Customer / Problem

Our customer is a middle-aged homeless man. He is currently unemployed, however, he needs an income to afford basic necessities such as food and water. He is aware of the current recycling depots, however, he doesn't own a car and they are located far away. This means he can't exchange the bottles and cans he collects for financial compensation.

What Is Your Solution?

Refinement of current recycling depots located around Australia by creating mini "depots" implemented in areas with a high population of homeless people.
