The Universal Bottle Crusher is a human-operated and gravity assisted machine that we have created to promote recycling. As we have walked around our school halls, we have noticed that recycling bins are filled all the way to the top and overflowing. This machine will crush bottles/cans, which will prevent recycling bins from overflowing, because of decreased volume of each can.
