About This Live Project

Sheffield Homes is an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) set up and owned by Sheffield City Council to manage council housing in Sheffield. As our client, Sheffield Homes offered us a list of potential project briefs for us to choose from, all of which deal with important issues and concerns regarding the current council housing stock in Sheffield. Our group decided to embark upon developing innovative solutions to address the important issue of waste disposal in flatted council estates. Our hope is that our efforts can offer strong design initiatives on the topic whilst creating awareness and incentive on the importance of recycling and proper disposal of household waste.

Foreign recycling


Blue bin: Household wastes (in each buiding)
Yellow bin: Paper, cardboard,etc. (in each buiding)

green container: glass (in the street)


Grey bin: Household wastes (in the street)
Blue bin: paper, cardboard (in the street)
Green bin: glass (in the street)

I'm waiting for more informations for Vienna, Luxembourg, Lausanne, Brisbane, Florence and Montreuil Paris's suburbs.

But it seems to be more or less the same way of collecting garbages. But I think that in Switzerland recycling is more developed.
