New Indian Express - ECOLOGIC - Recycle Demolition Debris

Excerpt from the article:

An example from one of my recent projects was the use of a motorcycle chain scrap. The pattern formed by the punching out of the motor cycle chain material fitted perfectly with the requirement for the design of a recycling centre!  The chain scrap was easily woven into segregated baskets — one each for paper, plastic, cardboard, glass and organic allowing users to separate and segregate their waste at source for easy recycling.”
