|Project Summary||Project Information|
The Headwater Food Hub is a Community Supported Agriculture organization that consolidates food from approximately 200 local farms and redistributes to customers in reusable plastic bins. Currently Headwater Food Hub cleans plastic bins individually with a water hose and air dries them. This is a very long process that currently does not include sanitization of the bins. The desired state is a food bin washing machine and dryer that cleans bins quickly and efficiently, fits into the provided space, and can be constructed/assembled on-site.
Our goal is to create a machine that reduces cycle time, implements an efficient cleaning and drying process, is equipped to process the two different sized bins currently in use and has scope to include two more sizes that the Hub is looking to use in the future. With the aid of a manual, at most two operators should be able to clean all bins within their 8 hour shifts. This should be able to be built and operated within a 23’ x 26’ space inside the facility. A functional prototype along with all the necessary documentation is the expected result, which can be provided to the Headwater Food Hub by the end of Spring 2020.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that you or your sponsor might not want publicly available: confidential information, personal phone numbers, photos, etc. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site. Remember that once you post something online, it's nearly impossible to remove it entirely!
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
- Comment out this text once you've read it.
