Description

The goal of the TrashTracker in-class service learning project was to increase awareness of litter habits on campus and inform buildings and grounds as to where improvements could be made. Students developed a smartphone app using Epicollect and Google Forms to monitor trash on campus and in the greater Plattsburgh area. The project was designed, promoted, implemented, monitored, analyzed, and presented by the ENV436/536 Population and Community Ecology course students in Spring 2013 to stakeholders. The TrashTracker app and project has since been duplicated on SUNY Fredonia's campus.
