The average Dane generates about 624 kg. of waste per year and only 12% of their daily waste is recycled. Denmark’s largest waste mangement company, Vestforbrænding, wants to increase this amount. By sorting our trash we can reduce our overall solid waste significantly, and many waste handlers already have the facilities to start recycling more resources. Vestforbrænding believes that people are much more inclined to sort their trash if a waste bin is placed close to their house, but having a large waste container just next to your kitchen window isn’t ideal picture of a home. So to bring a stylish element to the act of recycling, Vestforbrænding is inviting inspired creatives to design user-friendly sorting-can in their Sort Your Trash Can design competition. Entries will be accepted until October 28, 2012 and the winning design will receive 5000 Euros!
