The author considers the garbage paradigm and finds it wanting. Even better than the recycling of materials, he advocates the reuse of the highest function of all goods. The method is entirely general, applying to chemicals and industrial excesses as well as to consumer goods. The author was the first person to ever use the term Zero Waste publicly when he started the first company in the world for the recycling of industrial chemicals. The lessons that have been learned in thirty years of chemical recycling are expanded, generalized and applied to the total elimination of garbage as a concept. The book describes the possibilities now opening up thru the use of information technology, the obstacles placed in the way of reuse and many practical business opportunities for moving the field forward.
