To encourage more people to recycle and make the world a better place.

What it does

So, Recycle-Buddy shows nearby places where a user can recycle. And for each plastic, aluminium can or cardboard that a user recycles, the user will get certain amount of points. and after certain amount of points user will get a gift card.

How we built it

Firstly, we created an Amazon EC2 instance, then we used MongoDB database to keep track of things and use node js to build our handler, and for the front end we used Bootstrap, HTML5, Javascript, JQuery, AJAX.

Challenges we ran into

Communication between front end and back end

Accomplishments that we're proud of

What we learned

What's next for Recycle-Buddy

We will partner up with NGO to promote recycle-buddy and ask users enter locations of recycle bins nearby, and we will partner up with mayor of the city and ask them to put a QR code on the recycle bin. So, that every time a user recycles something he or she can track it using QR code.
