The "ready to take pictures" camera is a small camera commonly described as disposable but in fact assembled for customers to return it after use. After being dismantled, verified and meticulously cleaned, some pieces are reused, other recycled (86%). The plastics parts are torn, melted, recasted and then reassembled. A worker measures and controls on the computer accuracy's level of the plastic parts.  Eastman Kodak Company. Chalon-sur-Saône is located in the south of the Burgundy region. © 1996 Didier Ruef .
