    Hi folks,

    I'm wondering if you all can help me find existing studies that have done
    an honest comparison of municipal waste incineration and
    recycling/reduction/composting programs on a citywide level. We are trying
    to convince some large cities that they should at least take a serious look
    at the alternative approach to municipal waste management; and the findings
    of other cities that have looked at the same problem would be very useful.

    I know that Seattle had commissioned such a study several years ago, but
    does anyone know where I could get a copy? Are there other cities that have
    done similar studies?

    Thanks,

    Neil
