I respect your position but can I suggest an alternative perspective -
something is only garbage if it no longer has a use or benefit for
people, generally speaking. If dry garbage (paper, cardboard, timber
scraps and plastic) can be transformed from refuse into a "healthy,
happy house", it seems to me that's a big win. To invoke a different
spiritual tradition, perhaps it's akin to a lotus sprouting out of the mire?
Your fire concerns are certainly valid and need to be looked at
carefully in deciding on any construction material or system.
