Paper, Plastic, Glass, and... Electronics. Wouldn't it be great if there was an easy way to recycle your e-waste, like a 4th bin? Well, there just might be in the near future. Valiant Technology recently launched a competition calling for entrants to design an E-waste logo and E-waste Bin for New York City. Their intent is to see a clearly labeled 4th bin in every NYC building, and eventually across the country, to help people dispose of their electronics responsibly...The logo will be released as a public design (under Creative Commons), the e-waste version of the highly-recognizable möbius strip. Judges for the competition include Scott Henderson of Studio Scott Henderson + MINT, Aki Ishida of the Parsons The New School for Design + Ishida/Crandall, and Susan S. Szenasy of Metropolis Magazine, among others. Online submissions are accepted through May 1st, and regular submissions through June 19th.
