Whitman opposes NYC garbage plan
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Christie Whitman had this to say about New York
City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's new plan to barge thousands of tons of
garbage to New Jersey every day: "Whitman to New York's Garbage Plan: Drop
Dead." Whitman called the plan "an environmental disaster waiting to
happen," but New York City officials said the mayor's plan is
environmentally sound. The proposal, unveiled by the Republican mayor
Wednesday, was not made public to Whitman, also a Republican, until that
morning. The plan is designed to find a future home for the 13,000 tons of
trash dumped each day at a Staten Island landfill. See full story
