In the recycling process interesting materials are to be found, Bales are especially interesting for building because they are being collected in the recycling plant, and materials are sorted and pressed in standard sizes.
By stacking them you can build fast, at least 3 pieces high. About 80 different qualities of paper are being selected of which plasticized plastic is the easiest to use for building because they are watertight without extra treatment.
See how rural studios has used them!
