repurposedFUNNY:  A Ph.D. from Ohio State University was leading a sustainability session that we attended a while back about starting a byproduct synergy group.  Damon went up and introduced himself afterward and offered to help the group by trying to find "repurposes" for some of the waste streams.  He cut him short and said, "We don't like 'scavengers' like you in our groups."  Ah, the academic elites, you got to love them.  We remember learning in biology that scavengers play a very important role in any ecosystem!! 

repurposedREFERRAL:  "Damon, I received this e-mail from a colleague of mine here at Johns Manville.  I am currently in the process of going through some slightly damaged, or old material in one of warehouse locations.  I will be at this facility this week to get final counts and set the material aside.  I would very much like to keep this from having to go to a landfill.  If you have interest please let me know." Chris  REWow, Joe, we appreciate the referral.
