This new second edition contains new graphics, the latest information on composting and household refuse, and descriptions of the most current tools available to help readers get started with their own composting program.
There have been many articles over the years about the benefits of composting for gardeners, but living in the city without a yard, this reviewer never really thought it was something that would apply to me with my handful of flower boxes and potted plants outside. Joke's on me! This book tells you everything you need to know about composting and household refuse, and most importantly, how to get STARTED, and will be enough to convince you to finally get organized and go for it.

In this light, he shows how trade law interacts and can function within the demands and needs of the evolving environmental legal paradigm. Overall, the work provides more than one hundred examples of just how and when modern environmental and free trade law converge in the practical context of recycling of electronics such as mobile phones and personal computers in the internal markets of the EC and the U.S. E-Cycling is an ideal text for anyone navigating the myriad legal issues surrounding environmental protection and free trade. With holistic, horizontal guidelines and innovative use of charts and figures, the book will contribute to the effectiveness and coherence of public policy-making on the environmental law, trade law, and constitutional law levels.
