Waste material re-use and recycling worker co-ops
Here’s five videos from around the world about worker owned businesses that recycle and reuse materials which otherwise would have gone to landfill. The great thing about these new community owned businesses that there are now jobs where before there was waste. These businesses could potentially work in any area with a critical mass of waste resources and population, and this is one of the key areas we look at for opportunities during the area resource mapping study.
