Re: [greenyes] post-consumer, bag & film recycling

I thought about buying a Ford Ranger (or a Toyota Tacoma) collecting sheetrock compound containers from various construction sites, handing the latter out to all the residents of my city so that I could collect their organic trash.

Other than the fact that I wouldn't have a place to take organics (possibly way out - composting food scraps would stink - perhaps the answer is in some sort of in-vessel processing), I didn't have to do the numbers to see that it would not be a going concern (as they say). Still, I think it should be done...

Regarding your idea. I don't know what you're referring to when you say plastic film. Isn't photochemical processing obsolete? Anyways, your query makes me think of one of the problems with Capitalism. That is, unless you can afford to lose it, you probably shouldn't take the risk. Some people can afford it, most can't.

Subject: [greenyes] post-consumer, bag & film recycling

I am designing a re-usable container for the household or office collection of plastic film for recycling. My prototype has a small, one-way opening to stuff bags and plastic film so it compacts as you fill the container (patent pending). This could be used for residential curbside collection (with container exchange), office building recycling programs, and/or the container could be mailed/shipped to a recycler. All I need now is funding to make this system a reality. Please let me know if this is of any interest to your communities. I would love to take this project to next steps!
