Using a hypothetical American city of one million people, this groundbreaking study on value added to discarded material presents a detailed forecast of the costs and benefits of recycling. Four common material commodities found in a city’s waste stream are analyzed to determine their ability to maximize value added to the city’s economy, and how each can satisfy a portion of the city’s material needs.
