Recycling and Repurposing Man-made Waste
Waste management is an international concern in developed and underdeveloped nations. Sites for waste disposal are increasingly becoming limited. Limited access has led to improper management of waste and environmental degradation. Single-Stream recycling and waste management facilities are not assessable and affordable for all. Among food waste there is waste from man-made products. Clothing, plastics, furniture, and many of our basic necessities are contained in or made from man-made products. When those items are no longer of use they are typically thrown away with natural resources such as food. But unlike natural resources these resources do not compost. The improper disposal of materials that cannot decompose has contributed to environmental degradation.
There are many ways of disposing of such items in a sustainable way that can expand the life of a material or transform it to suit another purpose. This cuts down on the amount of waste that is produced and gives communities another resource of waste disposal that is of little costs or free.[toc] "heading 1" Context within NORA
