[GreenYes] incineration bans
Brenda:

San Francisco decided to trash plans for an incinerator and instead pursue
recycling  probably mid to late 1987.  I'm not sure if it was an official
ban or not, I think it was.  You can probably find a copy of the resolution
through the office of the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors.  The City also
has a landfill agreement that contracts for tonnage, not years of use.  So
the better the city does at recycling, the longer they get to use the
landfill.  Sort of the opposite of 'put or pay.'  So the structure is set
up to support recycling over landfilling or burning.

Stephen,

thanks for the inf. on San Diego's waste incineration ban.  Does anyone
know of other bans in effect (anywhere in the world)?
