Wow. Trash as FUEL!
I may be waaaaay behind the times, but I really didn't know about this yet: European countries, Denmark in particular, are building trash incinerators to generate electricity and heat (we did too 15yrs ago but have not embraced newer cleaner technology). And it's completely clean. Cleaner than burning wood in your own fireplace! It's one of those fascinating, frustrating articles for those with common sense. I may have lived in NYC but I don't understand Bloomberg's negative reaction to the technology when the city produces 10,500 tons of waste A DAY!!! Read the NY Times article to learn how trash can solve it's own problems.
