The Facilitators met with the Recycling team the 7th and 14th August. On the 7th the team was challenged to think about what they want the final project to eventuate into. Is it preventative and educational resources or events that decrease waste/plastic usage or is it a proposal written for Massey to offer composting or recycling? The team was encouraged to do their recycling trial in block 12 C floor kitchen.
On the 14th Mags and Marie met with Tallulah and Lexi. The students expressed feeling the pressure of hand ins as it week 5, the week before hand ins for CoCA students. They had put up the signs in the kitchens for the recycling, but though they weren't being a used as Tallulah was checking them in the morning – this could be because the cleaners empty the bins each morning, best to check in the evening.
The team also has plans to create a Meet Chloe Swarbrick Drinks (Green Party MP), run a workshop for people to create beeswax wraps, create a educational zine with recipes to create zero waste products and give facts about why being zero waste is important AND think about if they'd like to create a proposal for Massey to implement better ways of dealing with recycling.
The team will meeting up with Mags in the second week of the holidays before Week 7 to show the work they have done on the Zine.
This project is taking a break during hand in period.
About the project
A project looking into Massey's current offering of recycling and compost around the campus, to find out if it is something the Massey community wants and what solutions could be put in place to increase recycling and composting at Massey University in Wellington.
