Recycled Building Products
Let's Call It Paint Swap!

What do we mean by recycled building products?

I mean the reuse of materials left over from building and still in good condition.

The recycling I'm concerned with are my half used paint tins from my painting work - which can be used for other purposes as well as painting.

In Just One Year Of Work.

Imagine how much reusable material accumulates.

There must be many tradeswomen and men this applies to, as well as ordinary folk ...

...who like to build, paint or do anything practical.

Top Brazillian designers use recycled materials. Such as this table made from electic wire reels.

See what these villagers in Paraguay are doing with reclaimed waste.

To recycle ordinary waste differently in what can be considered a most desperate life situation.

In our case we are talking specifically about building materials...

...but the basic idea is the same.

One way to get your inspiring stories across... to have your own local Recycle web page and ask people to come to your page and make positive suggestions.


  • Your recycling idea for your street or town.
  • Your own or others' projects.
  • Any council recycling projects.
  • Any local initiatives.
  • Reporting back on successful swaps.
  • Anything else related to recycling.

Your local area could be your street, town or city.

You will also have a direct link to your webpage.

A final word from Habitat Q & A.

How does the Global Village program work?

A volunteer team leader, who plays a pivotal role in making the trip a success, leads each Global Village team. Prior to the trip the team leader will undertake training on all aspects of the trip.

Planning and preparation is coordinated through the Habitat organization that sends you, while volunteer coordinators and professionals in the Habitat organization that hosts you will manage the in-country experience.

Construction work varies depending on the trip location, the local construction techniques and the stage the building program has reached at the time of your trip.

You could be, for example, digging foundations, mixing concrete or mortar, laying blocks, raising timber frame walls, making window frames, plastering, painting or landscaping.
