Eve Martinez asked about prison recycling: I can
send you an article I wrote about a North Carolina
prison that reduced its waste disposal by 47% in just
three months by implementing source reduction, reuse,
recycling, composting, and vermicomposting techniques.
I have information about four prisons in NC and SC that
are recycling, composting and/or vermicomposting.

Pat Imperato asked about green stadiums: The Seattle
Kingdome has a very impressive recycling and vermi-
composting program, and they have used a lot of recycled
products for construction throughout the stadium.
