Abstract
An important amount of human household waste can be reused, as it is presently done all over the world in numerous social initiatives such as “Do It Yourself” proposals. Some waste containers have sufficiently good mechanical properties that make these containers promising candidates as some architectural elements. For example, this waste can become non-load bearing façade components, which have to withstand much smaller stresses than structural elements such as columns and beams. This arti...
