Take lots of used toilets from the largest city in the U.S. Mix with city officials who are always on the lookout for recycling ideas. And then throw in hundreds of miles of pothole strewn roads. What do you get? New York City will issue $125 vouchers to landlords and homeowners who replace old toilets with dual-flush toilets, and the city is looking for a partner to collect and recycle the 800,000 toilets it expects will be replaced. If all goes according to plan, the toilets could become part of city sidewalks and streets.
