Recycling contamination occurs when items are sorted incorrectly or placed in bins in an unusable state. Contamination degrades usable material and can make the whole batch go to landfill if it is too visibly contaminated. With China’s rejection of loads with more than 0.5% contamination, recycling buildup has become an alarming issue, with facilities being overloaded and sending good batches straight to landfill. Recycling Rundown is a 3-part exhibition that aims to bridge the gap between the user, their waste, and what happens to it after it leaves their hand. The exhibition includes: an information panel with a sticker sheet takeaway of tips and reminders, a ball run that is synonymous with sorting facilities to teach the users what happens after they dispose items, and a sorting test for users to test their knowledge while learning proper sorting habits.
