Graphic designers are usually not considered as a solution for disposing of dangerous waste, but they can be invaluable by creating awareness, producing multi-faceted designs which inspire recycling and sustainability, and encouraging citizens to dispose of their hazardous waste responsibly. This is especially true considering the disposal of biomedical waste such as needles used for dispensing medicine. Simply discarding these sharps into normal waste receptacles poses a hazard to those who handle such waste. This collaborative redesign effort cannot only bring this issue to the forefront, but can also provide an easy solution to the disposal issue.
Maybe the third time is the charm?
