RE: [GreenYes] composting and climate change
Susan ~

The report that I would recommend is Greenhouse Gas Emissions from
Management of Selected Materials in Municipal Solid Waste. Final Report, US
EPA, Report EPA530-R-98-013, September 1998, 144 pages, available free on
the Internet at
http://www.epa.gov/epaoswer/non-hw/muncpl/ghg.htm

Best wishes,

John
