RE: [greenyes] ceramics recycling
Crushed glazed ceramic not suitable for grog - only fired unglazed ceramic
is used.
Ceramics can be re-used in Mosaic mural projects and \i've seen some pretty
big Civic projects here in the UK - obviously there is a limit to this use!
I also have bought some very interesting recycled ceramic sculptures from
ceramic bits and pieces - a tea pot spout is turned into a cats tail in one
- again limited use - otherwise as it is inert - presumably hardcore or
crushed up and nmixed into concrete blocks etc?
