The realities of climate change can be overwhelming, but the good news is that-with your help-global warming can be slowed and ultimately stopped. You may already recycle those newspapers and milk cartons, and perhaps you have a compost pile in the backyard. But what about that old inkjet cartridge? Or that scratched CD? Green House: Eco-Friendly Disposal and Recycling at Home is an A to Z guide to disposing and recycling all varieties of common household trash, from broken appliances to spent smoke detectors and cell phones to pet waste.
Norm Crampton has worked in the waste prevention field for a number of years-as secretary of the Institute for Solid Wastes of the American Public Works Association, member of the Solid Waste Advisory Commission of the City of Chicago, and executive director of the Indiana Institute on Recycling. He is the author of the textbook Preventing Waste at the Source and the first popular book on household waste reduction, Complete Trash: The Best Way to Get Rid of Practically Everything Around the House, published by M. Evans & Company in 1989.
