URBAN HUBS

WHAT

Urban Hubs are 3D printed recycle bins for bottles and cans. They connect together with a modular design which allows you to use them in sets or one at a time.

WHY

The goal is to raise awareness and have a positive impact on neighborhood recycling rates. Urban Hubs are places where locals can drop off empty bottles and cans for their neighbors to collect and redeem for cash.

WHO

This project connects two communities: the locals and the makers. Makers download, print and install Urban Hubs, while locals feed Urban Hubs with their empty bottles and cans.
