Work from Waste
Recycling wastes to create employment
This book is divided into two main parts. Part I contains details of the wide range of materials that can be recycled and the processes involved. Part II describes how to set up and run a small business recycling wastes.
Jon Vogler, a chartered engineer, joined Oxfam in 1974 to set up the 'Wastesaver' project with the aim of raising money for 'poor world' development by recycling 'rich world' wastes. He then spent eighteen months visiting developing countries for the British government to study their waste materials and how these are re-used. This book is one result of his study.
