Transfer Station - From Trash to Treasure

Hawaiian says transfer station the most beautiful place in Hawaii. I love this. A real trash to treasure story. Actually, I love it because it illustrates how important and inspirational good design can be; how it can change behavior for the better in even the most unlikely of places. This is Pahoa but the County of Hawaii just completed a revamp of the Waimea and Kailua-Kona recycle centers and they too are much nicer places to be. Reuse. Recycle. The gist of the story is that as soon as the County revamped the recycle center (to the tune of $3.5m invested in design and rebuild) recycling went up a staggering amount, and behavior of users changed dramatically for the better.  Pride of ownership and mindfulness now exhibited by those who would not have bothered before. It's a beautiful thing and is a perfect example of the value of Real Estate by Design!
