E-M:/ Waste Import Story to Run Again!

Enviro-Mich message from "Jeff Surfus" <jeffsurfus@email.msn.com>

To all,

FYI, Channel 4 in Detroit is re-running the out-of-state garbage story again
at 7:00 pm on Saturday night on its "Dateline Detroit" program.

Channel 4 did an excellent job of visually depicting the problem of wastes
being imported into Michigan.  It was complete with hidden cameras following
the big tractor/trailers full of garbage across the Ambassador Bridge from
Windsor and then watching them dump at the huge Arbor Hills landfill from
Chopper 4.  It showed Canadian trucks lined up outside the landfill waiting
to dump.  It was a very effective image.

They also very effectively presented the problem of wastes containing banned
materials potentially being included in the Canadian garbage.  They got Jim
Sygo to say that no trucks were inspected by DEQ over the last two months
and they pointed out that BFI didn't visually inspect any loads that were
coming in.

Please watch this program if you can.
