[GreenYes] Re: Recycle Ike Contest - handling 5.6 million cubic yards of green waste debris


Title: [GreenYes] Re: Recycle Ike Contest - handling 5.6 million cubic yards of green waste debris

Thanks for sharing this, Jennifer.  A member on SlideShare has started
a group to post photos and information about Hurricane Ike and to gain
support for assistance victims of this devastation.

I took this opportunity to share this contest information with members
there by creating a presentation on it:

My presentation can be downloaded. So, you can make amendments and add
details of your own to email to your friends.
