An entire city racing to reuse all waste and creating jobs as a result

What to do with all the waste we produce?How about bring a bunch of entrepreneurs together and offer to give them the waste (think raw materials to make other products) at no cost? How about the city sponsor free fix-it days, where experts volunteer their time to fix anything you bring in - for free!?The city of Austin, Texas, is leading the way with these ideas and more with the goal of repurposing as much waste as possible while building up a vibrant, dynamic entrepreneurial business community that creates valuable jobs - a real win for all involved. Listen as I interview Gena McKinley, who heads up this successful program for the city of Austin.
