re•pur•posed•MA•TE•RI•ALS (noun) Byproducts and waste that have value “as is” to a second, unrelated industry. Repurposing IS creative Reuse. It is NOT recycling which requires huge amounts of energy to melt, grind, chip, or shred a waste stream into a useable feedstock to be used as a raw material to manufacture something new. “Repurposing” deals with byproducts and waste that get a second life because they have value “as is”.



The event is sponsored by the Council for Community Sustainability, a public outreach group created as part of Kankakee Community College’s sustainability initiative.
