I understand Maker Faire Austin is done and gone, but I’m still thinking about how much fun it was. Over the next week or 2, I’ll continue to share some highlights from the most make-tastic event Austin’s ever seen.
Recycling Biking Globe from the town of Chelmsford
In addition to many Makers reusing salvaged materials in their projects, Maker Faire Austin also managed to recycle over a ton of materials. Literally:
1360 lbs corrugated cardboard
700 lbs # 1 pete plastic (soda and water bottles)
32 lbs mixed plastic
570 lbs brown glass
530 lbs mixed paper
62 lbs aluminum cans
That’s 3222 lbs or a bit over a ton and a half.
