2013 Challenge Problem
Waste Not, Want Not: Putting Recyclables in their Place
This problem asked teams to come up with a way to quantify the plastic waste filling our nation’s landfills, and to suggest the best recycling methods for U.S. cities to implement, based on modeling relevant variables. They were then to use that model as a basis for recommending nationwide recycling standards.
