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 , also a LA Daily News
article on the topic can be found at,1413,200~20949~1337508,00.html dated
April 19, 2003, best of luck.
