Project Name:
The World's Recycling Is in Chaos.

Client / Client contact information:

Project:
Create a piece of art that promotes an awareness about recycling

Background / Overview:
Globally,  more plastics are now ending up in landfills, incinerators, or likely  littering the environment as rising costs to haul away recyclable  materials increasingly render the practice unprofitable. In England,  more than half a million more tons of plastics and other household  garbage were burned last year. Australia’s recycling industry is facing a  crisis as the country struggles to handle the 1.3 million-ton stockpile  of recyclable waste it had previously shipped to China.

What is the objective, the purpose of the art piece?
Over  the coming decade, as many as 111 million tons of plastics will have to  find a new place to be processed or otherwise disposed of as a result  of China’s ban, according to Brooks and University of Georgia  engineering professor Jenna Jambeck. However, the places trying to take  up some of the slack in 2018 tended to be lower-income countries,  primarily in Southeast Asia, many of which lack the infrastructure to  properly handle recyclables. Many of those countries were quickly  overwhelmed by the volume and have also now cut back on imports.

What do we want to say?
“Reducing  the amount of waste we generate in the first place is the most  important thing we can do,” says Lance Klug, information officer for  California’s Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery. The agency  has been working with manufacturers for the past decade to reduce the  discarded packaging that makes up about a quarter of what’s in the  state’s landfills, he says, adding, “We’re trying to get industry more  involved in the end-of-life disposition of their products.”

Target Market?
Everyone

Additional info & insights:
“The  collect-sort-export model, with some domestic manufacturing, worked for  us for a long time when markets for recycled materials were good,  particularly in China,” says Klug. “But that’s no longer the case, and  it’s probably never going to be the case again.”

Production Information and Job Specs:
Final  Design is up to you, remember you are completing an installment piece  that will be displayed in various exhibit halls & public spaces.
