I came up with this idea because I have been places many times when I can't find a recycling bin to use. It's incredibly frustrating when you want to help the environment and recycle, but you resort to throwing it in the trash because there doesn't seem to be anywhere you can. Even in a place I've been living for a good amount of time, it's sometimes difficult to find a recycling bin close by. Because of that, I was trying to come up with a way for people to easily find a recycling bin and become more green. I like to believe that more people would recycle if more of them knew where, how, and what to recycle, and maybe an app like this would help.
As of right now, this application is only in the concept stage, but I hope that one day I may be able to make it a reality.
