when you take your garbage out to the curb every week, do you ever stop to think about where it’s going? Producer Jori Lewis explores how New York City is trying to make it easier for residents to recycle their electronic waste. We also talk to Demir Hamami, whose company Renewed Materials creates architectural products using recycled (or un-recyclable) aluminum, which is used as a countertop surface in our new museum and conference center. Element of the Week: Cadmium.
