The product that I offer to help my customer get her job done:

Design Sprint
Week 1:
I came to Ms. Ha's house in the early Sunday morning when she was trying to move her recycle bin to the garbage truck. I observed that:

She carried the recycle bin by holding on the edge of it. The recycle bin was too big compared with her hands.

I asked her: "Why don't you change the big recycle bin into two small ones which fit your hands?". She replied: "I has a lot of trash. And I don't want to take 2 turns for moving all the trash to the garbage truck." She also said that her hands usually get hurt after carrying the recycle bin.

After this observation, I learned that:
Ms. Ha needs a new recycle bin with a convenient handle for her to carry it. An additional handle could help her to carry more easier.
I designed two recycle bins:
I showed my design to Ms. Ha and asked her for comments:

She said that she prefers 2-handle design. But she didn't want to buy a recycle bin like this. She didn't like my idea.

She explained that 2-handle recycle bin would still required 2 people for carry it. And it's uncomfortable for her to ask helps from her friends.

=> My first design can't solve the customer's problem: Ms. Ha not only needs a recycle bin fits with her hands, but also needs a recycle bin which allows her to carry by herself without asking helps.
Week 2:
Ms. Ha required that the recycle bin should:
Fits with her hand.
Doesn't need to a cover.
Has a medium size with large capacity.
Can be used for at least 2 years.
I came to Ms. Ha's house in the other day. This time I didn't ask any question. I just simply observed her and I saw that:

She used both of her hands to lift the recycle bin up. She walked slowly and carefully in order to keep the balance of the recycle bin. After moving for 2-3 steps, she fell down. Then she asked me to help. When I carried the recycle bin, I felt that it was too heavy for one girl to handle it.

Combining this observation and the previous interview, I learned that:

My friend doesn't need a 2-handle recycle bin. What she really needs is something that could help her to move the recycle bin from house to the garbage truck easily. The recycle bin is not only a storage of trash, but also a mean of moving trash from one place to others. So, I started to wonder what would happen if I could make the recycle bin to be moveable.
I designed a new idea:
I showed my new design to Ms. Ha and asked for her opinions. She suggested that the handle should be like the one of suitcase. She said that:
"There are other people would use this cycle bin. The handle should be flexible that allows them to adjust according to their height".
I think her idea is wonderful.

Materials and Equipments
Since I used my toy as the materials, the cost of creating the prototype is zero.
I brought the prototype to Ms. Ha and she liked it.
She agreed to buy if I could create a real product.

Understand customer's specific requirements:
1 basket
2 wheels
1 meter of water pipe
Nails and 1 spanner
1 tube of super glue
Prepare materials and equipments:
Make the product:
To save cost, I did it by myself and asked advices from my father who is an engineer.
It took 4 hours to finish the product.
Minimum / Maximum heights: 0.6m / 0.9m
=> The handle can be adjusted at any point between 0.6m and 0.9m.
Volume: 0.4m x 0.45m x 0.43m
=> The rectangular basket helps the wastebasket more balance.
