About WasteFinder

The WasteFinder is a two-part system that provides both tactile and visual
information to assist individuals with disabilities to independently and effectively
dispose of their waste in public spaces.

Vicinity Indicators

The Vicinity Indicator surrounds the surface area of the waste disposal unit. It lets individuals know when they’re within a certain distance of the bins. It can be felt distinctly underfoot even when using mobility devices.

Stream Indicators

Once in the vicinity of the waste disposal unit, the Stream Indicators help the user determine where to place their waste using raised symbols on the floor, so the user never needs to touch a waste disposal unit in search of braille or other tactile indicators, or get close enough to the waste disposal unit to read its signs.

The Stream Indicators also use simple shapes that are easily detected underfoot or through a
mobility device.
