Sorry again to be so new to the forum and so insistant.  But a section on repurposing things would be great.  Particularly for us city livin child having wasteful dipshits. 

I Just did some pre-fall cleaning and was absoltely disgusted by the amount of junk I was confronted by.  I live in Milwaukee and according to my last check we outsource our recycling to china.  As imperfect as recycling is to begin with outsourcing it makes it ecologically a mute subject I suppose.  Plus 90% of assumably recyclable goods are not able to be recycled in most places do to the machine take over of man made work.

I try to compost as much as I can even if it slows down the process.  Particularly though in cityscapes what is there for me to do with all of my waste. 

Maybe even a trading or donating feature between city dwellers and country livers would do some good.  There is simply not enough space on my property to deal with most of my waste but I assume there are many people in nearby areas who could put to use even the most assinine of my waste.
