To process in order to regain material for human use. Fibres = computer paper, boxboard, cardboard, newspaper, etc. Containers = plastics, metals, aluminum and glass. Green cart programs include a wide array of organic wastes. Remanufacturing = more fixing up than simple reuse.

Reduced consumption of water, energy, oil, metals, etc. Methane released from landfills from non-composted food waste. Landfills can only hold so much loss of land. Sorting (resalable parts, hazardous materials, crts) size reduction vibrating screen magnetic separation (ferrous materials) eddy current separation (nonferrous metals) density separation (plastics) disposal (landfills) Represents recycling at its finest remanufacturing a product back into the same product.
