Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rethink

Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County

Potion's interactive table at the Solid Waste Authority distills complex content into a fun, entertaining, and collaborative activity.

The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County’s recently opened Waste to Energy Facility is the most energy efficient and environmentally conscious waste facility in the USA. As part of this watershed project, Potion created an interactive experience that educates the public about SWA’s environmentally responsible operations and imparts their message of reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink (their “4 Rs”).

Working with SWA’s educators, Potion created a suite of interactive games that translate the 4Rs into real-life situations. To play the games, visitors step into SWA’s shoes to sort out reusable, recyclable, and even hazardous items from a quick-moving waste stream generated by Palm Beach County residents. Visitors are challenged to examine their habits of consumption, to change their recycling habits at home, and ultimately to become smarter citizens.

In addition to the interactive table, Potion also created a video presentation platform with live feeds from the facility floor, and an iPad app with which the SWA’s educators can tailor the content on either display in real time.
