Would you live in a house made of rubbish? Landfill leftovers (or items headed that way) like industrial plastics and tubing, household heaps of broken televisions, appliances, plastics, etc., are now being recycled into a material stronger than concrete to make walls for housing construction. This relatively new technology enables engineers to create a building material called thermo-poly rock that is substantial, water-proof, durable, and very inexpensive. Amazing as it sounds, recycled trash is now taking us one step closer to an answer for affordable or replacement housing. Now that’s quite a treasure!
