Reuse, recycle and disposal of emergency plastic sheets
After the earthquake, approximately 700,000 heavy duty tarpaulins (plastic sheeting) and 100,000 plastic tents were distributed by shelter agencies. At present more are being distributed to replace the damaged and degraded plastic sheeting. This short handout discusses what can be done with disused sheets.
