What was ABC's requirements or criteria for selecting the 500 people that were interviewed? Surely, if they selected 500 environmentalists in NYC that would have gotten a different response...

FROM WASTE AGE WIRE

NYC RESIDENTS CHOOSE INCINERATION
New York - According to a Survey USA poll taken on March 25, 2002, 56
percent of New York City residents would prefer to have the city's
garbage
incinerated rather than reopen the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten
Island,
N.Y., while 26 percent would prefer to reopen the landfill.

When asked about the city's recycling program, which Mayor Michael
Bloomberg
has proposed to cut for 18 months to save money, 76 percent said that
the
program has been effective, while 22 percent question its
effectiveness.

The poll was conducted by telephone exclusively for ABC-7 Eyewitness
News
and included a sample of 500 residents living in New York City.
