RE: [greenyes] Dana's question

Ah, no....EPA tried did a measurement tool kit and tried to get all states
to count apples with apples and oranges with oranges, but from what I
remember it didn't get very far despite the probably hundreds of thousands
they spent on the project. The tool's still available, but don't think any
state adopted the methodology.

Subject: [greenyes] Dana's question

The question is: Does anyone trust a comparative listing of state
recycling rates, given the definitional differences and calculation scams
prevalent in the field?
