Regarding Neil's request:
I encourage you to contact Paul Connett who has published Waste Not
for the past 10 years or so. The masthead reads, "The reporter for
rational resource management," and each issue presents thorough and
comprehensive coverage of issues regarding such things as toxicity
problems associated with incineration, landfills, dioxin,and
hazardous wastes. The expose entitled, "The Atomic Bomb, Teeth and
Fluoride," by Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson was one of the top 25
most censored news stories of 1998.
Not ones to be just nay-sayers, the Connetts (his wife, Ellen edits
the journal with Paul, Professor of Chemistry at Lawrence University
in Canton, NY), try to identify positive stories about recycling,
waste diversion, and community involvement to publicize, as well, so
we have models to base good programs on, and contacts willing to
share information about how to do it.

Hope this helps.

From: Neil Tangri <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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?
