Trying to reduce trash is a major goal in our house, and probably many of yours as well. So when I find a biodegradable item that is normally trash (think packaging), I feel better about throwing it away when I know it is returning to the earth by decomposing in a landfill.  But when trash gets incinerated, this effort is lost.

Earlier this year, the Charleston County Council voted to turn off the Montenay/Veolia incinerator in 2009, but are reconsidering. If you feel passionate about this issue, please attend the Charleston County Council Public Hearing at 6:30 p.m tomorrow night (June 24th) at the Gethsemane Community Center.

If you want to know why we should avoid burning our trash (Dioxins…oh my!), read this great paper from the SC Sierra Club, Lunz Group.
