Sending out aluminum cans and plastic bottles for recycling is simple-but how should people safely dispose of larger, more toxic, items? Divided into five segments, this program explains how various household objects can be recycled or reused, and how waste can be transformed into ethanol. In Canada, Sims Group Recycling Solutions reprocesses TVs, ensuring that the heavy metals within them are not put back into the water or air; Free Geek recycles and refurbishes unwanted or outdated computers at no charge; MattCanada disassembles mattresses in minutes, ensuring that 85 percent of the material is reused; and Peintures Recuperees takes old paint and varnishes, transforming it into new paint. Finally, Canadian company Enerkem creates cellulosic ethanol from garbage.
