RE: [greenyes] Toronto diverts 32%; Zero landfilling goal by 2006


Does anyone know whether this means "zero waste" to Toronto landfills
and all the rest to Michigan's landfills? You can't export your way to
zero waste. Thanks for calling this to our attention Marjorie, and folks
with any more details on Toronto's plans, please share to the list.
