  • What can our households, companies or community organizations do now to go beyond recycling?
  • How do neighborhoods and local business networks work together to create community ecologies?
  • What is the economy of scale of effort needed for entire neighborhoods and communities to profitably undertake total recycling, and go beyond to sustainable materials and energy economies?

Jim Shields is a leader in the recycling industry, who has chosen to "give back" by pioneering recycling services which are certified throughout the local and global recycling supply chain. Sustainable Business Networks is creating learning partnerships for green and local living economies.

Do you know that Many states have already made it illegal to put e-trash in landfills.Unwanted computers and similar equipment are rapidly clogging our landfills and pose an environmental hazard. So better have your PCs dispose properly at Computer Recycling Louisville KY. All types of types of electronic gadgets are welcome too.
