E-M:/ Applicable to Michigan municipal waste?

Enviro-Mich message from Lowell Prag <lprag@mail.msen.com>


Given all the protest in Michigan regarding landfills and incinerators 
for the processing our municipal waste, below is a link to a study by the
European Commission to move those countries towards the composting of all
their municipal waste.

In light of Michigan proposing to spend $10 billion on clean water: 

I should think this study and the many other studies with the same
conclusion, should convince us to also spend a similar amount on banning
landfills and incinerators in Michigan, by adapting state-wide composting
technology for all our municipal organic waste and the re-cycling of all
our non-organic waste.

Here is the report by the European Commission:
