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.

Recycling & Energy Recovery - Fun Learning

Getting the message across to school kids about the importance of recycling and energy recovery is a crucial initative. Clicking on the image below takes you to an interactive game designed by Veolia Environmental Services, who were awarded a long term waste management contract by Sheffield City Council.

"Eco-Star.com is an educational resource showing how waste management works, in a way that children enjoy and understand. Based around a virtual community, all the games are backed up with Did You Know? trivia and quizzes, together with teachers' notes and ideas for lesson plans with cross-curricular links."
