Dear David:

I spoke with Chris Allen who is the webmaster for the CIWMB web site and there was a technical problem (that I did not get into with him)that was the cause of the ID/password logon screen appearance. This problem has been resolved and I have just verified that public access to the CIWMB home page has been restored.

Date: Mon, 15 Sep 1997 22:49:29 -0400 (EDT) From: Subject: Two items

Since I got no response to my initial posting of this request, I'm trying again. I am working with some others to investigate how our state recycling organization can become more representative of ethnic and minority groups in the state. Does anyone out there know of similar efforts elsewhere?

Also, I am working with a cosmetics manufacturer that wants to sell in their stores hip, good quality, and tasteful accessories made with recycled materials. Does anyone have any suggestions of where to find these items?

Date: Mon, 15 Sep 1997 11:53:33 -0500 From: Anne Morse <AMorse@NT1.Co.Winona.MN.US> Subject: Zero Waste

Steve- I'm behind you all the way on the strategy for NRC!!! =20 Here in Minnesota we (counties, cities, waste haulers, businesses, the state office of environmental assistance, et. al) spent the summer in five, twenty-member technical teams considering how our state's Waste Management Act should be revised/updated. I'm proud to say our Waste Abatement Technical Team adopted Zero Waste by 2020 as the state's new goal. The response has been swift and strong, both pro and con, of course. =20 We have one final step to go through in this revision process, and that's an advisory group, where we'll work out a consensus position to present to the legislature in 1998. I'm now working hard to put together a concise summary of the benefits of Zero Waste to present to the larger group. =20 I'm looking to the Congress to provide real support for Zero Waste so that we can put our goal into a much larger context. A formal position in support by NRC is just what we need. =09 We're pushing a position of manufacturer stewardship for hazardous waste and problem materials in the waste management act revision process as well. I figure that that's the area where we can make the most progress quickly. (I'm scheduled to lead a breakfast roundtable on mfg. stewardship at NRC at 7:00 am Tuesday. I hope we'll have good participation!) > Looking forward to talking with you and other Greenyes members at NRC. > Anne=20
