[greenyes] Re: [Gaia-members] info request on diappers
Ms. Odriozola,

There was a press release put out Nov. 8, 2002 regarding a community south
of San Francisco known as Santa Clarita that is now recycling disposable
diapers through a municipal program.  The program is being run in
conjunction with a private company named Knowaste LLC.  A press release can
be found at http://www.knowaste.com/news/11_8_02.htm , also a LA Daily News
article on the topic can be found at
http://www.dailynews.com/Stories/0,1413,200~20949~1337508,00.html dated
April 19, 2003, best of luck.

Peace,
Timothy J.W. Logan
